      Book lice (Liposcelididae) are tiny insects found in many habitats, often in animal nests and human homes. They are related to true parasitic lice but instead of blood and skin, book lice feed on.   It also deals with metamorphosis in insects, the ways in which beneficial insects like silkworm, honey bees and lac insects can be best exploited for the human welfare. In addition, this area of entomology focuses on the exploitation of predators and parasitoids for the management of harmful insects and pollinators for the improvement of crop.

    Human interactions with insects include both a wide variety of uses, whether practical such as for food, textiles, and dyestuffs, or symbolic, as in art, music, and literature, and negative interactions including serious damage to crops and extensive efforts to eliminate insect pests. Academically, the interaction of insects and society has been treated in part as cultural entomology, dealing mostly with "advanced" .   3. Psychoanalysis and the Scientific Study of Insect Dreams.
