My book ‘The Bugs of Hong Kong’.

Spring has sprung...and after this rain there will be loads of arthropods...not to say bugs! If you want to know what these creepy crawlies are then I highly recommend my own book...written by a layman, for the layman, as I discovered more and more about the many wonderful species around us. With a LOT of help, from bug experts mind you! FYI, my print run is running there are limited quantities available, so be sure to get your order in ASAP.

This book is for anyone who has ever said, or heard “Hey, what's this bug?” The ultimate guide for anyone who wants to know more about the many tiny creatures we discover on our walks in Hong Kong. What on earth is that? What does it eat? Is it poisonous? Can it sting? Does it lay eggs? Where can I find more? Is it a male or a female? Are they rare? This book attempts to answer all those questions… and more! Using amazing photographic images and explaining in terms we can all understand - combined with rigorous science and expert help - Ferguson plunges us into the tiny, wondrous and fascinating world of Hong Kong bugs; sharing their secrets with his characteristic insight and unique humour.
