While the title may seem like this is just for people in Texas, this book would likely be helpful to any gardener. It has page after page of specific information about the insects that all gardeners face every season. It lists their names, their adult and larval size, a description, photographs, habitat, feeding habits and economic impact. Best of all, it describes natural and organic controls, if they're even needed--because guess what-- most insects are beneficial! A great book for all of us to study so that we know which insects to fight and which ones to respect.
