Insects are indeed valuable garden companions, especially the assassin bugs, damsel bugs, stink bugs, and other predatory carnivores that eat the insects that dine on your garden. Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden is a book about bugs and plants, and how to create a garden that benefits from both. In addition to information on companion planting and commercial options for purchasing bugs, there are 19 detailed bug profiles and 39 plant profiles. These profiles include a description, a photograph for identification, an explanation of what they can do to support pest control. Design plans show how to create a border specifically for the natural, sustainable inclusion of beneficial bugs in your garden.

Excellent overview of beneficial garden insects: the varieties, functionality over different growth stages, native plant attraction, life cycles, and recommended setup of insectory borders. Large index of native plants, most with climate zone ranges. Good macro pictures of subject insects engaged in various activities. Enjoyed reading!
