The book uses text, colour images and diagrams to describe the various insect pests and their life cycles. Identification of pests is the first step in determining control and management strategies. Specific control methods are not included to ensure that control is determined by assessing the whole system in which the pest is found.

The publication is useful to a diverse range of people including farmers, consultants, students and those generally interested in natural sciences.
