About this book

Do you know your pollinators?
- 40 insect pollinators common to the USA, including bees, butterflies, flower flies, beetles, moths, wasps, hoverflies, and more, each with its own full-page spread
- Fun and fascinating facts including appearance, behavior, flight season, habitat, and nectar sources
- High-quality full-page photo of each pollinator and type, showing their distinctive look and markings
- A must-have for gardeners and for anyone interested in attracting more pollinators to your backyard

Did you know there are over 20,000 different kinds of bees? Or that the Western Honeybee isn't native to the U.S., but was instead imported to North America in 1622? How about that there's a type of butterfly called a Peacock? From the most unusual to the most beautiful, inside Know Your Pollinators is everything you need to know to identify the helpful insects you might find in your garden. You'll discover loads of interesting facts about pollinating insects from ladybugs, moths, and beetles to bees, wasps, flies, and butterflies, including their appearance, length, flight season, habitat, and nectar sources.

Inside this fascinating guide, you'll also learn important details that will help you attract each pollinator to your garden or backyard: From the Common Buckeye, who is attracted to thistles and sunflowers, to the Rose Chafer who, after spending two years of its life as an underground grub, transforms into a brilliantly iridescent, fast-flying beetle that is drawn to brambles and dog rose! Honeybees have been domesticated for around 9,000 years. It is often said that without bees, humans would become extinct within only four. Today, with certain species on the edge of extinction, we need to know about more about our pollinators than ever.

The perfect gift for any aspiring gardener or those interested in attracting pollinators to their backyard, or even for children who are fascinated by bugs, this small format paperback is designed for any age and provides a fun and informative overview of a diverse group of important insects.
