Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This second and newly revised edition is an indispensable and authoritative manual for small-scale fruit and vegetable growers. Written by the director of the education and publication division of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Project, University of California at Davis, the guide comprehensively covers the biology of crop pests and their control through sound cultivation practices and a minimum use of pesticides. Incorporated in this edition is new information about horticultural oils, solarization techniques, and recently introduced biocontrols. Since it deals with crop pests in California, growers outside the state and other mild-temperate/subtropical regions might find some of the information (e.g., pests of citrus and avocado) irrelevant. The index to the book could have been more inclusive, with referencing of the scientific names of all pests described. Also, a list of the commercial sources for biological pesticides would have been very helpful. Nevertheless, this is an incomparable resourceAan essential purchase for all horticultural collections, especially in the West. For general readers and specialists alike.ABrian Lym, City Coll.

Review

"University of California entomologist Mary Louise Flint has updated her classic "Grower's Guide to Using Less Pesticide, making it even better! A spectacular job of summarizing low-spray management techniques. . . . Besides its comprehensiveness, the major virtue of Pests of the Garden is its clarity. Lots of color photographs showin pests and symptims complement the jargon-free text. . . . We recommend this book without reservation to all serious growers, as a textbook for self-paced study and as a reference guide without peer."--"Whole Earth

Format: Paperback
Amazon is the best place going for books. I bought this book, with Flint's, Natural Enemies Handbook, last year as a birthday present for myself. I can honestly say, I never thought that I would enjoy this book or learning about bugs, as much as I do now. In one growing season, I was able to restore my landscaping, from what looked totally destroyed.
It is a definite must have reference book, geared for all growing conditions. Would be a great for gift for your favorite gardener.
