Home Gardening tips 4 - Pest treatement
There are multiple solutions to fight against pests in your garden.

But be aware that promoting biological balance between pests and their natural enemies (ladybird, hoverfly, lacewing) is a clever alternative.

Don't worry at the sight of any insect in your garden. Very few species are dangerous to plants and humans. Instead give these auxiliaries a hand, providing them everything they need: food, breeding and a shelter for the winter season.

Do not forget the flowers in your garden are an essential food source for many auxiliaries who also feed on nectar and pollen of certain flowers when pest population is less important.

Do not apply untimely treatments, as they rarely sort out pests and beneficial insects. Accept aphids, at least wherever it doesn't generate any further trouble, because if they were all eliminated, the helpful auxiliaries won't have anything left to eat and therefore die or leave your garden.

Before fighting pests, consider planting species that have a natural repellent action, like:

  • absinthe (pieris)
  • nasturtium (aphid)
  • spurge (slug)
  • lavander
  • ivy (whiteflies)
  • melissa
  • mint (black aphids)
  • nettle (aphids)
  • horsetail (leek worms)
  • rhubarb
  • elderberry (moles and field mice)

Insecticidal plants:

  • garlic
  • comfrey
  • fern
  • nettle
  • pyrethrum
  • rhubarb
  • cockle
  • elderberry (manure or decoction)

You can also use "stuffy" products like clay (on the trunks of trees in winter) or soap (against aphids) added oil or alcohol.

This list of proposed products isn't exhaustive and you can also use non-toxic products sold in shops like pyrethrins or rotenone, insecticides against most insects and mites. Bacillus thuringiensis or nicotine may also be used as natural insecticide against caterpillars.

WARNING!  Even organic products can be dangerous. Rotenone is toxic to earthworms and insects.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad
is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had
to share it with someone!
