The Asian Lady Beetle Book

This is a picture book about the invasive species, the Asian Lady Beetle. Related to the ladybug, this beetle was first introduced to the USA as a predator for aphids, but it quickly spread throughout the US and into Canada. This book tells the story of the invasion and has lots of pictures, too.
