The History and Behavior of 'Wicked Bugs'

Bugs: We don't think twice about them, we swat them out of our face or maybe step on them without knowing. Bugs are often overlooked in today's culture. There was a time when bugs changed the course of history. In Amy Stewart's new book, Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon's Army & Other Diabolical Insects, she explores the role insects play in history.
