Review: Book About Bugs

I have been looking for-ev-er for a decent books about bugs. And I mean, ALL sorts of bugs: the good, the bad and those outside the garden. I scoured the library and the local bookstore. Nothing.

Well, tonight, the stars aligned. I had looked on Amazon for a bug book & found one highly rated. It looked promising. Then, after dinner, I went to a different bookstore & lo! there it was. Of course, I could have saved a few bucks via Amazon but the instant gratification was just too much for me. So I bought it: Garden Insects of North America: The Ultimate Guide to Backyard Bugs.

And, it's truly awesome. Lots of pictures. Easy understand info. The only downside to it, from my perspective, is that it's almost entirely identification information. It does not have how to get rid of bad bugs nor how to attract good bugs. That, I will have to look up elsewhere once identification is made. But, I'm stoked with it, nonetheless. There are these weird looking bugs that, thanks to this book, I believe are lady bug larvae.
