Description


Get this tabbed booklet to garden insects and bugs, and learn how to identify and attract (or repel ) them.

Brightly colored flowers, rich soil, and delicious nectar, the garden landscape is a bug's paradise. It attracts the ones we want to see--like bees, butterflies, and lady beetles--but also the ones we don't, such as grasshoppers, spider mites, and snails. Keep this convenient guide to garden bugs and insects close at hand. Designed for ease of use, the tabbed booklet is organized by group for quick identification. Narrow your choices by group, and view just a few creepy crawlies at a time. The professional photographs showcase more than 130 species. Written by acclaimed author and expert entomologist Jaret C. Daniels, Garden Bugs & Insects of California features only species found in the state.
