Indoor Wildlife is a book that looks at our houses and other buildings from the point of view of wild animals and plants.
Some come indoors to hibernate, some come indoors to find food and others come indoors to set up home. Still others use the walls and roofs of our homes, as well as our garages, sheds and outhouses. All-in-all, we share our homes with all kinds of fauna and flora.
Some species can be tolerated, while others can be a nuisance or even harmful. Ultimately, our homes offer artificial habitats to these species, so they accept the invitation. Controlling them is a matter of understanding their ecological requirements.
Cheshire takes readers on a tour of the animals and insects that share our homes, and our bodies (!) with us. Cute little creatures like mice, foxes and bats are to be expected, even the spiders, as creepy as they are are no surprise. It’s the other inhabitants that may leave you feeling unsettled, the lice, bedbugs and fleas that will make you scratch and shudder. But just wait until you read about the hookworms, tapeworms and face mites that hitch a ride on unlucky humans. Luckily, Cheshire then turns to butterflies and bees and other insects that no longer seem quite as creepy. This is a fascinating and informative book about the creatures who share our homes with us, like it or not.Cayocosta 72, Rose Smith

This volume is informative and well-illustrated, with the qualification that it leans heavily towards insects and their ilk. Readers seeking information about the very small creatures, moulds and viruses that co-exist with them within in their domestic environments are likely to find this book of considerable interest and very informative.Keith Rimmer, NZ Crown Mines
There are some really horrific photos of the kinds of wildlife we share our homes with in this sometimes terrifying book!Books Monthly
