Few insects are more important than bees, wasps, and ants. They maintain the
garden’s biological balance, fertilize vegetables, fruits, and flowers, and
recycle nutrients within the soil. It’s no exaggeration to say that a garden
can’t be understood without an understanding of its insects. Bees,
Wasps, and Ants explores the importance of the Hymenoptera and explains how
gardeners can encourage (or discourage) them in the garden.
Part One includes a summary of their biology and a tour of what role they play
in each part of the garden. Part Two takes a closer look at the individual
groups within the order, including sawflies, horntails, woodwasps, parasitic
wasps, predatory wasps, bees, and ants. Bees, Wasps, and Ants will
persuade even the most insect-phobic reader to invite these fascinating
creatures into their gardens.
