Good Bug Bad Bug, updated 2nd edition, is an indispensable field guide for quickly and easily identifying the most common invasive and beneficial insects in the garden; plus the best organic advice on how to attract the good guys and manage the bad guys - without reaching for the toxic chemicals. Includes strategies for dealing with the “new bugs in town,” those worrisome strangers that are starting to show up due to climate change (and some that have just flown in from abroad). Forty-one bugs, presented in full color on laminated card stock, with concealed wire binding. Sturdy enough to take into the garden for easy reference. An attractive gift book for adults and curious kids alike. The 2nd edition contains a number of color photographs not seen in the 1st edition and presents three new "bad bugs" to add to the rogues gallery of insect pests.
Additional "bad bugs" to be found in the 2nd edition:
The Grasshopper- which causes significant damage to the gardens of North America and can fly for miles.
The Lygus Bug - another significant North American pest, doing great damage to fruits, berries, vegetables and flowers; especially prolific in the South.
The Brown Marmoratted Stink Bug - a recent arrival from Asia that feeds on fruits, vegetables, berries and flowers, and has a nasty habit of invading our homes.

First this is a very pretty little book with coated paper so you can take it into the garden. The selection of insects, however, is very limited. Most of my pests are not included. As for the photos, I have the same complaint that I have with almost every insect book that I've tried - something is missing from almost every insect profile. In this book all the insects are shown at about the same size even though in life they vary greatly. The size is mentioned in the text, but it would have been so easy to include a scale to indicate the actual size. My next complaint is lack of information on the different life stages. These things do not necessarily look similar as juveniles and adults - and a photo of eggs would be very helpful. In fact, to be really useful every insect covered should be shown as egg, nymph or juvenile, pupa (if appropriate) and adult. In some cases a sketch with scale would really be more helpful than the photo. By MaryAnn Armbruster
I do like the information provided on how to encourage each beneficial, but many of them could have been treated in a table. What is the use of a photo when the insect is rarely even seen because of its size? Maybe a few more pests could have been included to replace these meaningless pictures.
I love having this book out in the garden with me so I can figure out which insects are the enemy. By Organic Man
It's easy to use, the photos are nice and the spiral binding is perfect. It's just the right size to throw in my tool bag when I'm going to work in the garden.
I like how plant damage is highlighted in photos along with pictures of the larval state of some of the insects.
Good Bug, Bad Bug is well written, full of invaluable information and an indispensable tool for every gardener.
