Format: Paperback
As a European I have difficulties with the north American concept of bugs. Butterflies and moths (lepidoptera), beetles (coleoptera), flies (diptera), dragonflies and damselflies (odonata), etc. ARE NOT bugs, they are INSECTS. Only hemiptera are bugs.

Quite apart from that the book is absolutely useless for anyone who has a serious interest in insects. As the other reviewer remaked, some species are represented with just one example, e.g. page 88, 'Hover Fly', Syrphus spp. With this lack of information how will any reader learn to distinguish between bees, wasps, flies and hoverflies. The author then adds, "In England, many people study hover flies as a hobby, and there they enjoy the luxury of being able to buy colour field guides to their local species....." I suppose by England the author means Britain or the UK, but other European countries have illustrated field guides to individual insect species as well.

I bought the book second-hand from a US seller for my forthcoming visit to BC. Fortunately it was very cheap and the postage was reasonable also as it is light with only 160 pages covering the insects and some spiders of British Columbia.

The book only has a few types of each bug in BC, I was looking for something more comprehensive. This is good for reading to a young child but not for identifying most bugs in the area. For the price I paid I expected a lot more.
