Improve Your Garden With Safe Pest Control
One of the most common issues every gardener experiences is the frustration of dealing with the damage pests cause. Whether you grow your own food or enjoy having a beautiful yard, tainting your soil and poisoning your plants with harmful chemicals is the last thing you want to do. Here is a list of four ways to keep garden pests at bay without using pesticides.
Four Tips to Safely Control Pests In Your Garden
- Identify & Learn About Your Pests: The most important part of deciding how to deal with garden pests is identifying which types you are up against. Pay close attention to the creatures you find near your plants and the damage you notice on leaves to help you investigate the issue. Carefully research each pest to learn about their weaknesses.
- Welcome Predatory Species: Common pests such as aphids, ants and caterpillars are the preferred meals of spiders and other predatory species such as mantids or ladybugs. Carefully research the best ways to introduce predatory critters into your garden who will happily help you reduce the pest problem.
- Fight Pests With Plants: Nearly every garden pest has a specific type of plant they avoid. Research the herbs or flowers your pests detest and strategically plant them throughout your garden. Try adding marigolds, rosemary, lavender or cilantro to your garden to observe the power of this safe pest control technique.
- Stay On Top of Maintenance: A garden that is plagued with weeds and littered with dead leaves offers the perfect habitat for pests to feed and hide. Routinely weed your garden and remove dead leaves to keep the area attractive and less welcoming to pests.
Finding the perfect organic pest control technique can be difficult and will often require a bit of experimentation. Contact Green Home Pest if you need help from a team of environmentally friendly professionals.
