Nature, Walliser says, works best when it's allowed to stay in balance. Even bad bugs aren't entirely bad in the garden, she argues. After all, they attract the beneficial bugs that prey on them.
Walliser introduces her readers to some common beneficial bugs and the plants that are best at attracting them. She also guides readers in creating insectary borders and companion plantings designed to encourage natural enemies to do battle in a way that's healthy for the garden.
"Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden: A Natural Approach to Pest Control" sells for $24.95 in softcover.
