Any gardener worth his salt has worried about the telltale signs of leaf damage, bore holes and all manner of infestations. This little book is real gem, with color photographs of some of the most common pests, signs of leaf damage and what to do to eradicate the infestations. Deference is given to control by natural predators as opposed to chemical sprays, too. Even the younger set will appreciate this concise rendering and colorful presentation.
