Book Review



Don't let the price tag frighten you. This is a book you will turn to again and again, in fact every time you pick up a moth or butterfly and wonder if it is one of those on which Asher Treat found mites. The quotation on the fly leaf gives an insight into the enthusiasm and curiosity, as well as the thoroughness of Asher Treat. "Whether in the field, at home, or in a museum collection, the search for mites on insect hosts is an adventure as exciting as any treasure hunt. Every insect, looked at closely enough to reveal a mite, is an exotic island whose bays and coves may harbor a lurking pirate or the telltale traces of some hidden thief."
