The best book we have ever seen about insects in the garden. Learn to recognize the good bugs from the bad ones, how to prevent attacks, what plants they damage, organic products that control each insect and more. Very easy to use; spiral-bound and full color photos of each insect make this the funnest guide to garden insects ever! We found ourselves using this multiple times over the summer, as it is so easy to find what to use for each problem.
