What's bugging your garden?

The Wisconsin Pest Bulletin is a great source of information on the insects you may be encountering in your gardens.

A free service of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, this informational site gives you the option to sign up to receive weekly newsletters, has a printable archive, and has all the latest news on what's bugging your garden.

This could well be one of the most useful tools you could adopt for helping you fight insects in your garden.
