Book Description. Biology of Blood-Sucking Insects provides a unique, topic-led commentary on the biological aspects that are common to blood-sucking insects.

This account focuses on the biological modifications that clearly suit the blood-sucking habit and outlines the medical, social and economic impact of blood-sucking by: Insects have three body regions: head, thorax, and abdomen.

The head functions mainly for food and sensory intake and information processing. Insect mouthparts have evolved for chewing (beetles, caterpillars), piercing-sucking (aphids, bugs), sponging (flies), siphoning (moths), rasping-sucking (thrips), cutting-sponging (biting flies), and chewing-lapping (wasps).
