Check out the Bug Mugs section of NationalGardening.com's Web site. It's loaded with mug shots of common pests and beneficial insects. It contains great photos, brief information on what plant parts the bugs attack, and least-toxic methods to get rid of them (or, in the case of beneficials, to attract them).
