Who Let the Bugs Out?
A Beginner's Guide to Managing Radical Insects
Author: Timothy J. Gibb
Photography: John Obermeyer
This book is designed to be a companion to the "How to Make An Awesome Insect Collection" book for beginning entomologists. It discusses the importance of insects generally and pest insects in particular.
A series of photographs of many common pests is provided together with biological information to help the student recognize the insect, determine its damaging life stage, know its habitat, and predict its damage potential.
Methods and strategies for employing controls are discussed with examples of each so that students gain an appreciation of the philosophy and implementation of Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
