About this book

Insects are the most efficient and inventive predators on earth. From caddisfly larvae, weaving underwater nets to catch their prey, to the lightning reflexes of the praying mantis, the sheer range of predatory strategies makes insects central to a more general understanding of predation in all animals. This book, the first authoritative Australian work on insect predators, also looks at the way we could harness these patterns to control insect pests safely and effectively.
