Milkweed, Monarchs and More: A Field Guide to the Invertebrate Community in the Milkweed Patch
By Ba Rea, Karen Oberhauser, Michael Quinn
Bas Relief Publishing Group, 2003
Spiffy little book illustrating insects (and a few other arthropods) that frequent milkweeds and other meadow flowers of North America. Excellent photographs, with detailed identifications using scientific names. Especially nice is the Gallery of Ladybug Beetles, illustrating some common members of that family. Detailed notes on ecology. This book is a gem, and a bargain at $9.00 list.

BugGuide contributor Mike Quinn is one of the authors!

Field Book of Insects of the United States and Canada, Aiming to Answer Common Questions,
By Frank Eugene Lutz
Putnam Pub Group, 1935
Originally published in 1917 and revised/reprinted at least through 1948, this guide is still useful. It has a large number of illustrations, both color and line art. It is especially good on covering diptera and hymenoptera, not covered well in most modern guides. (Borror and White's Field Guide to the Insects is an exception.) Lutz did a great job of chosing notable, and noticeable, insects from a number of orders. Also includes a few non-insect arthropods.

The taxonomy is, of course, somewhat out of date, but it is worth picking up used if you can find it. The later printings/editions, (1935, 1948) can be found used for $5-$10. Try bookfinder.com , for instance.
