I was recently invited by web-radio host Kate Copsey to join her on “America’s Homegrown Veggie Show” to talk about insects in the garden and to discuss my forthcoming book, Attracting Beneficial Bugs to Your Garden: A Natural Approach to Pest Control (Timber Press, January 2014). Kate and I spent our time chatting about managing challenging pests and promoting beneficial predatory insects. America’s Web Radio was gracious enough to allow me to post the show on this blog so that you can hear the full interview.
Kate and I had a great time together. My favorite parts are when I share the interesting ways I shot all the macro images of insects for the book (I had a refrigerator full of bugs!) and when we discuss how companion planting can attract specific beneficial insects to the garden. I hope you enjoy listening to the interview as much as we enjoyed recording it!
