Backyard Insects (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Love them or hate them, we can't avoid the insects that share our homes and gardens. Crawling with full-colour, larger-than-life photographs, "Backyard Insects" is a fascinating guide to the bugs of urban Australia. Is it placid or poisonous? A plant-eating pest or good for the garden? How do you start a collection? Paul Horne tells us all this and many more details of the often bizarre life cycles and behaviour of backyard insects. Denis Crawford's extraordinary photographs vividly capture the colour and personality of the bugs, placing in a new light the cockroach in your cupboard and the silverfish in your sink.
