In an encore presentation from a year ago, we take a captivating look at the sinister side of the natural world on today’s Zesty Garden. Author Amy Stewart uncovers more than one hundred of our worst insect enemies in her book Wicked Bugs: The Louse That Conquered Napoleon’s Army and Other Diabolical Insects. It’s a mixture of history, science, murder, and intrigue that begins-but doesn’t end-in our own backyards. The Green Room showcases the pothos houseplant as a low-light alternative, and in Petals and Prose it's the language of bees.
