The enemy of my enemy is my friend…

The old proverb the enemy of my enemy is my friend is true for home and business owners looking to defend their plants.  Last week at New England Grows at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Suzanne Wainwright-Evans gave a great lecture on natural enemies and predators in the landscape.  Her website, Buglady Consulting, has an extensive resource list.  At the top of her list, is one of my favorites, Natural Enemies Handbook.  This guide has several sections, the most important of which may be how to identify and use natural enemies to your advantage to protect your plants.
