The story of Big League Chew starts in a bullpen, where two pitchers didn't like players' habit of chewing tobacco.
Did you know that a tarantula was once used in a murder attempt? (It failed.) That though bedbugs get the lion’s share of media attention, mosquitoes and deer ticks cause far more harm? That there’s a brand new treatment for scorpion stings?
Author Amy Stewart has collected a host of stories about bad bugs in her new book, “Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon’s Army & Other Diabolical Insects.”
Amy says that researching the book hasn’t increased her fear of bugs. Instead, it made her more aware of which bugs could pose a possible threat.
