This is one of the main pest references we use here at Seedy Farm. It's easy to use, well organized and full of illustrations. I haven't looked at every bad bug and infestation in the book hope I never have to! But each time we have something new this is the first book I reach for.
This book is almost a miracle. I can't find every bug that's in my back yard in there, but I find most of them! What is really valuable, and worth every penny of the price, is the comparisons of good bugs with their "evil twins." I wouldn't be without it.
This is a great reference book that every gardener should own. Excellent photos of insects with descriptions & indicates damage & life cycle. Also tells if they are good bugs or bad bugs. This is an all round good book that I refer to often.
Super reference book. How to control pests & diseases without using any chemicals at all. Color pictures of insects in various stages of life, as well as symptoms of diseases for easy identification. The big section on individual plants (vegetables & flowers) explains how to avoid problems, lists what types of problems to expect, and gives suggestions for what to do if they do occur. A final chapter gives very detailed instructions for implementing some organic control remedies. A range of detailed suggestions is given for every possible problem, with a lot of emphasis on prevention.
This is a very good reference book that I find myself going back to often, about the various insects and diseases that you will encounter in your garden, both good and bad for your flowers, trees, shrubs, vegetables. Good small 1.5" x 1.5" photos of the insects in various stages of development, with short paragraphs of description, damage, life cycle and control for each. The other section on plant types are informative paragraphs that explain problems that can occur. Also a section with good small 1.5"x 1.5" photos of the various plant diseases with short paragraphs of symptoms, plants affected and prevention and control. Scattered throughout are also informative b&w and color illustrations as well. Overall good book addition to your gardening library.
