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.

Paperback; 7-1/2 x 10”; weight 4.2 lbs.
