|General Description :||Series of low-value definitives featuring beneficial insects, the second issue with such a theme. Series of 5 stamps.

Each of the insects featured is a wonder to watch at work in the garden.
Another “exterminator,” the assassin bug, uses its beak to suck the bodily fluids from its soft-bodied victims.
