RHS Top Ten Pests 2007

Each year thousands of people phone the RHS for advice about pest control. All the enquiries are recorded to compile a list of the nations favourite (if that’s the write word) pests. The list for 2007 was announced yesterday. Here it is: 1. Slugs and snails 2. Harlequin ladybird 3. Vine weevil =4. Cushion scale =4. Ants 6. Rosemary beetle 7. Berberis sawfly 8. Rabbits 9. Lily Beetle 10. Cypress aphid. To find out what all these pests are and how to control them visit www.rhs.org.uk and have a look at my books The Little Book of Slugs and The Little Book of Garden Villains. Both available from www.cat.org.uk/shopping. Click on the Bookshop area of the site.
