I was told at least 18 months ago that this book was to be published. It arrived today and I must say that it was worth waiting for. For anyone with an interest in ladybirds its a must! The information is very well written, easy to understand and very comprehensive. If, like me,you are fascinated by these creatures and want to know more about their life cycle, distribution and habitats, its all in here! I can now go out into the field armed with a greater knowledge and understanding and know exactly what I'm observing. A big well done and thank you to all the contributors.
For anyone with an interest in these lovely little creatures, this is an excellent book with a good key guide to help you ID all the species. Would make a lovely gift for the amateur to the professional entomologist or beetle fan.
Super introduction to these favourite beetles of childhood. Easy to read and well illustrated, this book goes far enough to enthuse professionals - the identification keys are excellent - without talking down to (or baffling) the rest of us.
A wonderful book - especially for beginners, like me. Everything I could possibly want to know about Ladybirds is in this book. It's very well written, easy to follow and covers every stage in the life of these beautiful little creatures.
