An estimated 70 million feral cats live in the United States alone--decimating bird populations and threatening public health.

Designed for kids doing research and those wanting a ready source of creepy information, Buzz off, Flies! offers information on life cycles, family trees, and the fly's unique relationship with humans. From School Library Journal: Gr 3-5-Profusely illustrated overviews profile a gaggle of infamous pests. In each one, short paragraphs of lively text cover essential information about the featured animals: distinctive physical and behavioral characteristics of particular groups/species, classification, basic anatomy, feeding habits, habitats, etc.; outline their evolution and historical relationship to humans; and offer tips to prevent infestations and for knowing what to do when they occur. Each title also includes sections with movie and literary trivia, idioms, and so on, tied to the animals and intriguing miscellaneous facts. (For instance, cockroaches can survive 12 to 15 times the amount of radiation humans can endure.) Color photographs complement the text on almost every page. Life cycle diagrams are also included. A few of the photos in these sections are just for laughs (e.g., a man cringes beneath a giant cockroach; a startled woman looks into the compound eyes of an enormous fly). Small silhouettes of the animals, massed together, decorate the page corners. These broad, entertaining books will be good companion volumes for more detailed introductions on some of the same creatures, such as Shelley Bueche's Bedbugs (Gale, 2005) and Sophie Lockwood's Flies (The Child's World, 2007).-Karey Wehner, formerly at San Francisco Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.
