Designed to fit in your pocket, this field guide is a simple, all-round booklet for people with minimal or basic knowledge of native bees and other beneficial insects.
Australia is home to over 2,000 species of native bee and Section 1 explains a few of the characteristics that will help you identify some of our more commonly encountered native bees, found throughout Australia. It helps users ID bees to genus and gives some examples of species within these genera.
Section 2 highlights a few familiar garden insects and explains what beneficial ecosystem services they provide in your garden.
The easy-to-read explanations are accompanied by over 100 beautiful images, demonstrating that "a picture paints a thousand words".

A great resource. It's very easy to flick through the large, high quality images to find the insect being observed. I love that there's information at hand, not only on the characteristics and life cycle but also on the Ecosystem Service provided. I would highly recommend this pocket-book.

I bought this little bee guide for my hubby for christmas. We are always looking at our garden and saying is that a bee, is it a native bee or bug, he would snap a pic and would run off and google. Now he won't have to. It is awesome thank you. Good quality.
