Gardeners who loved 50 Ways to Kill a Slug-which has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide-will welcome this equally practical and wildly funny follow-up. It promises to save plants and banish bad bugs from the backyard with 100 organic, chemical, and simply silly ways to wreak revenge on even the smallest pests. For example, did you know that ants don't like lemon, salt, Vaseline, or cinnamon? That those pesky fruit flies hate basil? Learn how to attract the good creepy-crawlies, including ladybugs that can munch their way through up to 40 destructive aphids a day, as well as soil-nurturing worms. Includes appealing cartoons throughout.
