They are the stuff of nightmares, creatures that lurk in the shadows just beyond our sight.
They are the stuff of nightmares, creatures that lurk in the shadows just beyond our sight. They have the power to deceive, kill, dismember, enslave, even brainwash others to do their bidding. Some swarm with such power and aggression that they darken the sky. Others turn the ground into a flowing river of bodies. What are these creatures? Insects. Join Phil DeVries on a journey to the dark side of the bug world. But prepare to be surprised: Where we see beasts, DeVries sees beauty; where we feel terror, he experiences delight. In the name of science, DeVries will risk dangerous encounters with harvester ants in Arizona, swarms of locusts in Africa, flesh-dissolving hornets and blood-sucking leeches. DeVries is a living human laboratory whose daring approach is helping unlock secrets of the insect world.
