Reviews

April 21, 2014... Got a new book last week called Good Bug, Bad Bug, by Jessica Walliser. It has pictures which are fabulous when identifying bugs. Descriptions alone just don t cut it. Walliser describes 27 pests and 14 beneficials as well as having a glossary and a source directory. Source directory, you ask? Yes, because the best part of this little show-and-tell book is every pest has a picture, a description of their life cycle, what plants they like, which beneficials like to eat them (otherwise known as biological controls) and preventative actions that can be taken (or bought). Hence, the source directory. Ms. Walliser is the co-author of Grow Organic and her preventative actions range from cut the leaf or damaged part off to using non-caustic botanical oils and neem on the affected plants. Using this book helped me identify some pests as well as some beneficials in my own garden. Walliser is very complimentary to ladybugs as they consume most of the larvae of pests before they get to be adult problems. My ladybugs will be making their mail order appearance sometime this week.--Backyard Gardeniing Editor "The Ponca City News "" "An entomological tour de force.
