A series for young children that explains the vital importance of insects to our world. Perfect for young children studying living things and their habitats in their science lessons, or for young minibeast fans, this book explores insect helpers and pests. We need insects to survive - for pollination - and many are essential for pest control. But insects can be trouble, spreading disease or eating crops. Then there are the 'useful' insects - that make silk or shellac, or for dyes and wax. Insect design is also an inspiration to inventors and researchers, such as those inspired by the strength of spider webs to unlock other strong materials, or investigate how mealworms are able to eat plastic. Alongside the simple text, fantastic close-up photographs show the insects at work.
