Format: Paperback
Although this book sounded like a great reference for home pest control I was mislead. According to the author, this is a companion to the original detailed manual - Common Sense Pest Control. To be able to control specific pests like termites, carpenter ants or pests in the attic, the first book is the one to purchase. I sent my Gardener's Guide back.

This book was an invaluable source of information for me when I was writing a proposal to my Homeowner's Association about how we could implement an IPM program in our community. FYI - the Board of Directors of the HOA accepted the proposal and the neighborhood is now a safer place for our residents.

Format: Paperback
The best book for the professional as well as the layman on Integrated Pest Management - from weed control to insect pests. Gives excellent advice and council that goes far beyond the usual "If you can't pick them off, spray them with a chemical." There are many, many sound alternatives to pesticides given as well as information and "where to get it" on the new technologies, as well as the tried and true gardening methods.

The book is quite scientific. It might require some basic knowlege in simple biology and chemestry. But to someone who is willing to aquire this knowlege, it should be no problem.

The Hardback Edition that I wanted had excellent information on ticks and their control. This updated paperback has omitted ticks from these pages...I wish I could omit ticks from my garden as easily.

Great integrated pest management without using nasty pesticides. I showed it to a Master Gardener and she is getting a copy to add to her library.
