Overview

Honeybees in the flowers, fire ants in the yard, roaches in the kitchen-the good, the bad, and the ugly bugs are all over Texas! And they're here in the Texas Bug Book, your complete guide for identifying and organically controlling all of the most common Texas insects.

Drawing on years of practical experience and research, organic gardening experts Malcolm Beck and Howard Garrett give detailed instructions on how to identify, understand the life cycle of, and control or protect Texas insects, mites, snails, slugs, nematodes, and other critters. They also include striking color photos and black-and-white drawings to help you identify each bug.

What sets the Texas Bug Book apart from other insect guides is the authors' organic approach to pest control. Beck and Garrett highlight the many useful roles that bugs play in nature and offer proven organic remedies for infestations of pest insects. Most importantly, they explain how to create a balanced, healthy environment in which infestations are much less likely to occur.

    EXCELLENT!

    This is the greatest bug book I have EVER come across! I am writing a bug book and this book is a great great reference. I can look up so much from this book. I would NEVER sell it! Its great, handy and useful to look up a bug. And another good thing is that it is particarly for Texas, where i live! I am telling you right now: if you live in texas and have a thing about bugs, even if you don't, this book will help!! I couldn't even stop talking about it! Its great! You won't regret it!
