The Good Bug Book
Second Edition

The Good Bug Book contains information about all the biological pest control organisms that can be bought 'off the shelf' in Australia and New Zealand from members of Australasian Biological Control (ABC). This second edition contains descriptions of twelve new organisms that were not included in the first edition.

Topics covered include:

• descriptions of each beneficial organism and its lifecycle (illustrated with colour photographs)

• pests controlled

• suitable crops and environments

• how to handle and manage the parasites and predators before release, at release, and after release

• cultural practices that promote establishment of beneficial organisms

• compatibility of beneficial organisms with various pesticides.

A general section on integrated pest management (IPM) rounds out the book.

The Good Bug Book is a valuable resource for crop growers, agricultural and horticultural advisers and consultants, students and teachers of agriculture and horticulture, and anyone else interested in integrated pest management.

Available from Bugs for Bugs, Mundubbera.
