Where Are All the Christmas Beetles?


Christmas was once heralded by jewelled and shiny Christmas beetles, doing their slow walk across our floors, tables and curtains. Their sweet barbed feet catching our hands and clothing.

Lately they've not been seen in significant numbers. This book asks why and explores the possible reasons for why their populations have declined.

A perfect read for budding naturalists and beetles fans, as well as any of us who miss seeing these bright happy creatures in the lead up to festivities each year.
