This textbook gives a broad overview of pests of human foodstuffs held in storage. The work contains a large number of illustrations, which make the mentioned (larger) species easier to recognise.

The text is greatly expanded and is orientated to the food industry, which makes it, unlike many other textbooks, a one of a kind in its subject area.

The book is aimed at Environmental Health Officers, as well as B.Sc. and M.Sc. Food Science students and staff.
