Mention "Bugs" and most people think of centipedes, slugs and large dark spiders - the classic "creepy crawlies". But invertebrates (animals without backbones) account for as much as 98 per cent of the Earth's animal diversity and they are of fundamental importance in every one of the planet's ecosystems.
This book describes some of the invertebrates found in gardens, homes and other buildings. A few of the most common and most easily recognised insects, such as ants, lawn beetles and flies, are not included, but spiders, butterflies, earwigs and crickets are there in all their glory. Pocket sized publication.
