You were young. You got stung by a wasp. It hurt —forever cementing your aversion to anything that looked like a wasp. But how much do you really know about them? Did you know that aside from pollinating native plants, wasps prey on crop-damaging insects, or that researchers use wasps to detect the invasive emerald ash borer? Learn why “the world could not afford to lose its wasps” with a book that teaches you everything you didn’t know you were missing about these fascinating pollinators. The book includes five introductory chapters, followed by profiles of 150 wasp species from twelve families. It gives a detailed description of anatomy, life history, diet, nesting biology, and more. Learn about the diversity of rituals they practice for hunting prey and attracting mates. It also includes a native plant guide for eastern North America and chart of wasp-plant interactions. With range maps for every species and over 1000 striking photographs, this book is perfect for nature buffs and photography buffs alike. This is a book for academia or the home; professionals and beginner gardeners alike are sure to learn how to observe, attract, and support our imperiled native wasps from this easy-to-use guide. Hardcover  • 412 Pages.
