Insect field guides help individuals know what type of insect they find whether in their own back yard or out on a hiking trip. The reason insect field guides are so important is that you will be able to learn if the insect is dangerous or not.

When you look at the various insect field guides, you will see an alphabetical listing of the common insects known in the area. If you choose an insect field guide for a specific state, you will learn about the insects that live in that state. If you choose an insect field guide for a particular region then the amount of insects can be quite a bit larger.
