Excellent overview of beneficial garden insects: the varieties, functionality over different growth stages, native plant attraction, life cycles, and recommended setup of insectory borders. Large index of native plants, most with climate zone ranges. Good macro pictures of subject insects engaged in various activities. Enjoyed reading!
