A first-of-its-kind guide that showcases an incredibly diverse group of insects—the true bugs (Heteroptera)—and their connection with native plants.
While most true bugs have a varied diet of plant and animal matter, many spend much of their lives on flowers and flowering plants. In addition, these lesser known, misunderstood, and often maligned insects provide essential ecological services such as pest control and pollination.
Highlighting their importance, this ground-breaking field guide provides a useful resource for citizen scientists and field biologists to study, identify, and appreciate true bugs in the Midwest.
This flower bug guide includes:
• hundreds of photographs from dozens of families,
• tips on when and how to find these bugs, and
• their associated native flowering plants and habitats.
