This kit is ideal for someone who has some previous knowledge or interest in entomology. The Collins Complete Guide to British Insects is a photographic field guide to all of the common and some of the unusual species of insects across Britain. Over 1,500 species are illustrated with detailed photographs chosen for their help in identification. The guide includes photographs of larvae. Differences between similar species are highlighted and information is provided on when to look and where to find each species. Insect groups dealt with include butterflies and moths, mayflies, dragonflies, damselflies, grasshoppers, crickets, earwigs, lacewings, bugs, bees, wasps, ants and beetles, all with keys to ensure accurate identification.

The kit also includes all the equipment needed to catch and study specimens. The swpp net is designed for catching insects and other bugs from long grass and shrubs.The net features a 25cm head width and has a short handle with a comfortable foam grip that offers excellent control. The frame is made from lightweight aluminium and the soft calico bag which os attached using strong velcro. A pair of super fine pointed forceps allow for careful manipulation of specimens and the five collecting pots allow you to store your specimens for further study. The 3.5x magnifying pot has a grid on its base for estimating size.
