Editorial Reviews

Review

"If you are a professional or amateur horticulturalist working with ornamental trees and shrubs, you will want this book. It is the most useful tool we have ever seen for identifying insects that affect woody plants. . . . For those times when you can't quite place the insect into a group there's a carefully done index according to host plant."―Horticulture Review

From the Back Cover

A journal that is descriptive of insects that feed on shrubs and trees.

Format: Hardcover
When trying to identify a particular problem with growing trees or shrubs knowing what kinds of insects are possible culprits is a major step. This book gives us, in color photos and descriptions, most of the common larvae that can be found feeding on the particular plants. Even Entomology texts often refuse to deal with larvae of insects, keeping only the adults in the keys and descriptions (even though the adults are often not pests!). This guide will be a welcome addition to any plant clinic, grower, or Entomology professor or student's bookshelf.

This book is on my "short list" of essential references. Species are covered in clear, concise descriptions. This well organized volume makes hunting for similar species as easy as turning a page. The photos? I can't say enough about the clear, photos that make insect identification a good deal easier!
While an excellent book for the landscape professional, scientist, or advanced gardener, beginners might be a bit overwhelmed by the technical language and scientific names.

I agree that this book has great descriptions with photo's of insects and how the leaves or branches will look when infested even over a period of time. However, that is it. You must go to find your resolution somewhere else. It does not give any direction of how to treat any of these problems safe for the tree or shrubs. A very good reference book to find your point of departure.

This is not a field guide that can be carried around to aid in identifying insects on site, but it is a most comprehensive and detailed guide to insects. I like how information is indexed both by type of insect and by host. The photos are outstanding -- large, good quality and color, so that it is easy to just flip through the book to find what is being sought. This is a highly regarded source, which I see is referenced widely.

This is the "go-to" reference for every bug that eats trees. Indeed, Cooperative Extension Services, instead of reinventing the wheel, simply reference you to this book to learn all there is to know. So big, so full of information that you'll never digest it all.

If you are interested in the health of trees and shrubs and want to know what insect or pest is attacking them, this is the book to have. This book should also be used with Diseases of Trees and Shrubs to find out what pathogens are harming trees and shrubs. Both books are the bible for people interested in tree care.

This book is a definitive study of insects that feed on trees and shrubs. We are a horticultural family and need to know "the inside dope" on bugs. Excellent info!
