|From The Publisher*||It takes a lot of work and a fair amount of money to grow a garden, and a top fear of every gardener is having their investment wiped out by deer, rabbits, and insect invaders. This book is filled with clever ways to be proactive and stop pests from feasting on your bounty.|
The Guide to Humane Critter Control shows many ways to incorporate protective barriers without ruining your sightlines, outsmart the invaders using insect behavior, use scent to your advantage, and more. With methods and products that are not only kind to wildlife and insects but also healthier for children and pets, this is the blueprint for creating a safe backyard for play, beauty, and healthy fresh-grown foods.
