Grissell brings years of study and an infectious enthusiasm to this beautifully illustrated volume. He describes the many important roles of these insects; the ways they interact with plants, people, and other insects; how to recognize them; their place in the garden; how to encourage the beneficial ones to live in the garden; and the truly fascinating stories of individual species, all in language accessible to the non-specialist reader. Includes lists of websites and references.
