Description

With their extraordinary diversity, adaptability and abundance, insects and other invertebrates are the gardener's greatest foe. Packed with stunning photography, Michael Chinery's Garden Pests of Britain and Europe provides a reader-friendly introduction to the identification of 200 of the commonest insect pests of the backyard, along with other invertebrates such as slugs, snails and millipedes. Introductory sections provide a brief discussion of insect biology, beneficial species, and an overview of environmentally friendly control methods, such as crop rotation and biological control. Each species account gives detailed photographically-based identification tips for adults and larvae, an introduction to the biology of the species, and advice on how to deal with it. 'Helping to identify 200 common garden pests...readers benefit from a brief introduction to insect biology, as well as a guide to beneficial species. For those who prefer a pictorial guide to garden nasties, this title has macro photography of garden bugs.' Amateur Gardening 'Know your enemy with this accessible pocket guide, full of useful photographs.' Gardens Illustrated 'This is a great identification guide for garden pests.' Garden Answers
