Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden

A Natural Approach to Pest Control

by Jessica Walliser

eBook

Winner of the American Horticultural Society Book Award
Insects are indeed valuable garden companions, especially species known for eating the assassin bugs, damsel bugs, stink bugs, and other predatory carnivores that dine on your garden. Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden is a book about bugs and plants, and how to create a garden that benefits from both. In addition to information on companion planting and commercial options for purchasing bugs, there are 19 detailed bug profiles and 39 plant profiles. These profiles include a description, a photograph for identification, an explanation of what they can do to support pest control. Design plans show how to create a border specifically for the natural, sustainable inclusion of beneficial bugs in your garden.
