With their extraordinary diversity, adaptability and abundance, insects and other invertebrates are the gardener's greatest foe. Packed with stunning photography, Michael Chinery's Garden Pests of Britain and Ireland provides a reader-friendly introduction to the identification of 200 of the commonest insect pests of the backyard, along with other invertebrates such as slugs, snails and millipedes.

Introductory sections provide a brief discussion of insect biology, beneficial species, and an overview of environmentally friendly control methods, such as crop rotation and biological control. Each species account gives detailed photographically-based identification tips for adults and larvae, an introduction to the biology of the species, and advice on how to deal with it.
