This book is written in the endeavor to foster an interest in insect biology on the part of students of natural history, of nature observers, and of general readers; it provides in a single volume a general systematic account of all the principal groups of insects as they occur in America, together with special accounts of the structure, physiology, development and metamorphoses, and of certain particularly interesting and important ecological relations of insects with the world around them.

The object of the Handbook is to afford a general survey of the field, and to put the student of medicine and entomology in touch with the discoveries and theories which underlie some of the most important modern work in preventive medicine.
The book provides an overview of insects, mites and ticks that directly cause diseases of humans and domestic animals, and that transmit microbes causing disease. It is aimed at students and practitioners in medical and veterinary health services.
