Beyond the bugs. 3 Sep 2014
By Janet K Hoadley - Published on
Format: Paperback
There are a lot of organic books out there. There are some good books out there, and an increase in looking at beneficial insects. And then there's this one.

It pictures many of the insects talked about, and the stages of growth. But it goes beyond that to not just when it's nice and they're helping - but cover crops, fence rows, hedges etc give the bugs - your free working partners - space to survive and thrive. Many enjoy looking over an area with fireflies flickering but don't think about what they eat, and where they live.

It takes time and effort to develop an independent place, but many farms of all sizes can do better at providing for those native beneficial insects that can reduce the pesticide bill - maybe in time eliminate it! Wouldn't that be nice?

This book perked my interest with a new challenging spot to get in production - I look forward to implementing some ideas from the book and increasing the conservation of not only rare livestock and heirloom varieties of plants, but the beneficial insects that can make a difference. I originally, in full disclosure, viewed the book on Netgalley but it's truly a beautifully illustrated book that is worth a read. With a hard copy in hand, it's easy to plan and move forward with protecting and providing for these largely invisible partners.

One of the best and accessible books on Ecological Biocontrol of Pests 11 Sep 2014
By Edward M. Spevak - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for any farmer or gardener that is looking for effective ways to reduce pest issues while being sensitive to the environment and the future health of the planet. There are examples for any scale of farming from large scale to community garden to your home. The information is easy to grasp but not simplistic. All examples are based on solid research.

This is a book for anyone that cares about food, the environment and our health by reducing pesticide use.

I cannot recommend this book enough. I have it in hard copy as well as the kindle version to be able to take out in the firld with me.
