Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Starcher, an organic gardener, says good bugs are the ones that are beneficial, their behavior helping control plant-eating insects that otherwise would feed off our gardens. Starcher divides the good bugs into predators, such as the praying mantis and ladybird beetles; parasitoids, such as some species of wasps; pollinators, such as bees; and soil builders, such as earthworms. Color illustrations of each insect in egg, larval, and adult stages are included, along with a list of plants that attract them (such as baby's breath, clover, dill, goldenrod, lavender, parsley, and sunflowers), the insects they feed on, and their habits, habitats, and appearance.
