Box elder bugs are some of the world's most fascinating insects! This book's easy-to-read text and larger-than-life color photos bring the box elder bug's world to life, introducing readers to a box elder bug's diet, habitat, enemies, and methods of defense. Diagrams help readers investigate the concept of metamorphosis and identify body parts, from the box elder bug's red eyes to the X on its wings. The digestive, respiratory, and circulatory systems are also described. A step-by-step approach to scientific classification helps place box elder bugs within the order Hemiptera. Readers are also encouraged to consider the benefits and drawbacks of box elder bugs, as well as how they impact our daily lives. From resting on box elder trees to overwintering in your house, young entomologists will enjoy uncovering the lives of these amazing creatures. Informative sidebars and Bug Bytes aim to peak readers' interest, while bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability.
