This is the book that Australian gardeners have been waiting for! Packed with more than 750 stunning and detailed photographs, and a wealth of easy-to-follow, comprehensive and reliable advice, Garden Pests, Diseases and Good Bugs is the ultimate illustrated guide for anyone who wants to encourage a healthy, thriving garden.

Every garden is host to hundreds of insects and other invertebrates. Fortunately very few of them are pests. But how do you tell if an insect is harmful or not? And what about those nasty looking leaf spots, and mildews, and strange lumps and bumps? Garden Pests, Diseases and Good Bugs show you how to figure out whether an insect is a pest or not, identify the signs of disease, and apply hands-on preventative and control techniques before resorting to pesticides.

  • The most comprehensive guide to garden pests and diseases in Australia
  • Over 750 photographs to help you identify the good, the bad and the ugly in your garden with ease
  • Features natural and non-toxic solutions as well as chemical controls
  • Over 150 pest insects and other pests described in detail along with the good bugs that get rid of them
