This is a short book, probably not intended to be read cover to cover, though I did. The longest section is on the pests, about one page each in alphabetical order, with descriptions of lifecycle, symptoms, controls, and an illustration of the pest in its pesty stage; this section might benefit from illustrations of the entire life cycle for recognition and context. Other sections are on cultural controls (e.g. crop rotation), beneficial insects (e.g. ladybugs), natural pesticides (e.g. alcohol). This is basic information, helpful if you’re starting from scratch, as I am. I’d expect more detailed books to exist, but this one is good enough as a first pass.
