Story Summary

In a future, hotter world, the oxygen content of the air has increased and with it the size of bugs - six inch bees and three foot cockroaches. Extermination has become a military responsibility, and specialists like Sergeant Lissa-Marie and Corporal Gustafson spend their days fighting back the arthropod world in Kevlar suits.
