Ornamental trees, shrubs, and flowers are an important component of modern life, from houseplants to trees in public parks. This authoritative and beautifully illustrated account provides a unique source of reference for all practitioners involved in the recognition, biology, and control of the pests of ornamental crops. The author recommends appropriate control measures, including the environmentally conscious methods of handpicking insects, eliminating insect hiding places, and using certain pesticide and chemical controls. Entomologists, horticulturists, pest control specialists, integrated pest management (IPM) practitioners, growers, students, and teachers will all find this to be a thorough and comprehensive text.
