Published by Lone Pine Publishing, 2008.


People too often only perceive bugs as unattractive alien species that should be crushed or sprayed with toxins. However, many common bugs found in your garden are essential predators, necessary to keep plant-attacking insects under control.

Entomologist, butterfly curator and instructor Leslie Proctor Foster from Niagara Falls has teamed up with entomology instructor Ken Fry and entomologist Doug Macaulay to present you with the ultimate garden bug book for Ontario:
  • over 130 species of the good, the bad and the ugly bugs
  • tips on identifying the creatures and their prey or predators, plus where you’ll find them
  • helpful advice on attracting good critters to your space or controlling the bad ones
  • an Integrated Pest Management approach to enhancing the harmony of your backyard ecosystem
  • factoids on garden lore, insect-human relations and interesting tidbits
  • beautiful, full-colour illustrations of the various life stages of the bugs.
A good garden is a healthy ecosystem, with everything in balance. Garden Bugs of Ontario helps gardeners attract the most beautiful bugs and repel the worst.
