Bugs in the House!

Presented by: Thomas Cheetham, Ph.D., Northeast Laboratory Services, Winslow, ME

An illustrated survey of common, and uncommon, arthropod fauna of the home with a discussion of their biology and behavior. A few of these creatures have an impact on human health. Which should be of concern and which are harmless guests? What are they all doing and should we be worried about any of them?
