About this book

Aphids, ants, grubs, and earwigs are not only creepy-crawlies but they can wreak havoc on your garden and new plants. But fear not! You don't need dangerous chemicals in fertilizers and pesticides to enjoy a lively, healthy garden. The secret? More lady beetles, fewer aphids! Wildlife in your garden-especially insects-can be natural pesticide alternatives, they can pollenate plants, they can contribute important nutrients to the soil, and sometimes they're simply beautiful to look at.

Good Garden Bugs will discuss how to attract them, how to preserve the natural habitats they need, and how to work with them to grow and enjoy your garden. Yes, you can order a lot of ladybugs (for example) in the mail, but it's a more effective, long-term solution if you attract them with the right environment! Good Garden Bugs is an easy-to-follow reference to natural, non-harmful ways for your gardens to grow full and bountiful.
