This book was written with the intent to make insect and disease control accessible and understandable for the average homeowner. Most books available on the subject are college level text books, diving into the unique biology of various insects and diseases. None of them prescribe a common commercial product for control of the disease or insect your fighting. Understanding the product label is an even harder task for a homeowner. I hope this book helps you understand what rates to use and how to best apply. With the pictorial guide I hope you feel comfortable identifying your disease or insect issue and then using the recommended control.
There are 2 sections of disease and insect identification in this handbook, followed by 7 different sections on common chemical and organic controls that can be found at most local garden centers including big box stores. Happy Gardening!
