About this book

Language: French

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.

Summary in French:
Reconnaître les bestioles indésirables et savoir en débarasser votre jardin tout en respectant l'environnement.

Par leur diversité, leur abondance et leur faculté d’adaptation, les insectes et invertébrés (limaces, escargots, mille-pattes) semblent être les grands ennemis du jardinier. Cet ouvrage accessible et très largement illustré décrit 200 espèces communes dans nos jardins. Pour chacune d’entre elles, macrophotographies, fiche technique et diagnostic permettent une identification rapide des adultes et des larves. La biologie de l’espèce est succinctement décrite et accompagnée de conseils pour l'éloigner ou l'éliminer, dans le respect de l’environnement.
