Farming with Native Beneficial Insects: Ecological Pest Control Solutions
Farming with Native Beneficial Insects: Ecological Pest Control Solutions
by Eric Lee-mader
Staff Pick
Looking to increase your organic harvest? This is one of the most exciting farming books I've seen! It's not just bugs (although there are plenty); it's also cover crops, grassed waterways, and brush piles. Farming with Native Beneficial Insects has a wealth of information on introducing and restoring biodiversity for the backyard farmer as well as for the farmer with actual acreage. It's from Storey, so you can count on lots of color pictures.
