    Notices publication of John G Wood's Insects at Home. Notes that insects have found ways of making themselves 'at home' in the home and records a number of 'unspeakably unpleasant' insects contemplated by the book's author. Believing the book to have been written by some 'literary Bedfellow Destroyer', is surprised to learn that its author is a 'Clergyman and a Naturalist'.
