About this book

Spiders are everywhere and Louisiana is no exception. Very few species are dangerous and these eight-legged allies are one of the most reliable and cheapest forms of pest control, gobbling up insects that carry diseases, infest homes and damage crops. Learn to recognise many kinds of spiders with this durable laminated twelve-panel guide that folds up conveniently to fit in a pocket or pack. Perfect for the casual observer, gardener, homeowner or curious naturalist, it serves as both a general introduction and a useful reference. Colourful photographs illustrate 100 spider species, including several of both male and female, in side-by-side comparisons with descriptive text highlighting size, habitat, and web type. Representative webs are also shown, together with information about silk, venom and hunting techniques. A small section features other arachnids, such as the Scorpion, Harvestman and Ticks.
