Nick Baker's Bug Book

Nick Baker

We are all fascinated by, and often wary of, the tiny creatures that creep and crawl in our gardens or lurk in the dark corners of our homes, but how much do we really know about insects and their relatives? For instance, could you identify the larvae of a ladybird which eat 50 aphids a day And did you know that some species of snail are hairy?

This book aims to encourage our understanding of all types of bugs that can be found in our back gardens and beyond - worms, snails, ants, earwigs, woodlice, centipedes, flies, grasshoppers, beetles, bees, wasps, spiders and butterflies (to name but a few) - by offering practical information and fun activities for the whole family. Learn how to determine the sex of a spider, how to look after ants in a home-made formicarium and even how to rear your own dragonflies!

Packed with details on essential equipment for bug watching and collecting, clear annotated diagrams on bug anatomy and amazing full-colour close-up photographs, as well as astonishing facts on insect behaviour and identification, this book is essential reading for budding entomologists of all ages.

100 colour photographs plus 200 colour artworks. 40 black-and-white illustrations. 128 pages.
