Anyone who gardens knows how snails, aphids, scale insects, and caterpillars can damage vegetables, flowers, shrubs, and trees. But not many of us know that ground beetles eat caterpillars, not plants; that dragonflies feed on mosquitoes; that parasitic wasps prey on tomato hornworms. In this delightful guide to the world of beneficial insects, Starcher, an artist and avid gardener, shows us how to identify the “good guys” and encourage them to reside in our gardens. “Altogether delightful.”–Newark Star-Ledger; “A fact-filled, charmingly illustrated guide.”–American Bookseller.
