|2017, 704 pages, 3,300 color photographs, 5 line
illustrations, 9 tables. The second edition of Garden Insects of
North America solidifies its place as the most comprehensive guide
to the common insects, mites, and other “bugs” found in the
backyards and gardens of the United States and Canada. Featuring
full-color photos and concise, detailed text, this fully revised
book covers the hundreds of species associated with fruits and
vegetables, shade trees & shrubs, flowers & ornamental plants, and
turfgrass—from aphids and bumble bees to leafhoppers and mealybugs
to woollybears and yellowjackets—and much more. The new edition also
provides a greatly expanded treatment of common pollinators and
flower visitors, the natural enemies of garden pests, earthworms,
insects, and other arthropods that help with decomposing plant
matter in the garden.
Designed to help you easily identify what you find in the garden,
the book is organized by where insects are most likely to be seen—on
leaves, shoots, flowers, roots, or soil. Photos are shown next to
detailed descriptions of the insects and their associated plants.
An indispensable guide to the natural microcosm in backyards, Garden
Insects of North America continues to be the definitive resource for
insect lovers, professional entomologists, and gardeners.
