This antiquarian book contains Ephraim Porter Felt's 1924 work; "Manual of Tree and Shrub Insects". It is a general account of the more important or common insects that attack shade and forest trees, shrubs, and woody ornamentals. Containing a wealth of useful information and practical tips, this timeless volume will be of utility to modern farmers and agriculturalists, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Preliminary Information", "The Parts of an Insect", "Transformation of Insects", "Origin of Insect Pests", "Introduced Shade Tree and Ornamental Pests", "Natural Checks and Methods of Control for Injurious Insects", "Spraying Apparatus", etcetera. Many vintage texts such as this - particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before - are increasingly hard to come by and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
