Farming with Native Beneficial Insects

Farming with Native Beneficial Insects

by The Xerces Society, 272 pages, 7¼x10, softcover. Let your friendly neighborhood bugs do the work! This thorough guide illustrates how to create environments to attract and to manage native beneficial insects on your farm. Packed with colorful photographs and profiles of predatory and parasitoid bugs, and a large selection of host plants. Techniques such as building insectary and filter strips, shelterbelts and cover crops, as well as hedgerows, insect hotels and brush piles, are copiously illustrated. Features charts by region for native seed mixes and host-plant selection. Case studies following every chapter bring personal stories that provide practical reference. Even though the subtitle is “Ecological Pest Control Solutions,” the principal practices discussed in this book go beyond pest management, ultimately aiding with pollination, restoring biodiversity and establishing resilience. -Aktan Askin
