Backyard insects is a guide that allows anyone to recognize the insects that we most often find in Australian cities. Not only will you be able to find out just what the insects in your backyard or house are, but also whether or not they are poisonous or pests, what they eat, and other details of their often bizarre life cycles and behaviour. More than 120 superb full-colour photographs accompany the text.
If you are interested in understanding more about your local environment or are simply curious about the cockroach in your cupboard and the silver fish in your sink, Backyard Insects is essential reading.

Dr Paul A. Horne works as an entomologist for the Victorian Department of Agriculture, Energy and Minerals. pp. 232 colour illusts #0419 (Some creasing to cover.)
