Books, insects.

okiehobo(7a)October 20, 2011

Hi all. I'm looking for a book on garden insects, It must have color photos of all stages,

eggs,larvae,nymphs,pupae,and adults. and be written for the average Gardener to understand and not for an entomologist.

I am considering 'Garden insects of north America,

But I wanted to check with you all to see if you know anything about this book, or know of a better one.

I would appreciate any help you can give me on this subject.

I looked it up on Amazon; it gets great reviews. I am hoping for other suggestions because if I order it I want to get free shipping. You tempted me and I am weak. I have some insect books but so far I have needed separate books to get enough information. For example a book on dragonflies, another for moths and butterflies. Maybe this book does it all; if so that would be wonderful.

I have this book and I love it! Helen, I, too, have a lot of books on butterflies and moths, especially because I have a Butterfly and Moth garden, growing plants that sustain their larvae and nectar plants as well. But, I am also interested in other garden critters and that's where this book fills the gap in a big way.
