Thousands of pests are waiting to attack your garden; the trick is to fight them in their natural habitat without any man-made chemicals. For every pest that you can find in the open world, you will find two methods on how you can fight them the natural way. What is the benefit when you use the natural way to combat these pests instead of using man-made chemicals, well let’s list them?
– The natural way of fighting is much cheaper making it a preferred way for many low-income houses
– The natural way leaves less chemical residue for nature to absorb, which in turn keeps your garden cleaner
– There are fewer ways you can make mistakes with the natural way so nothing can go wrong to a catastrophic degree
– You don’t need to prepare vast areas that your pets might visit and poison themselves
– The natural way sometimes has better results with a lower impact on many things
The first thing you want to do when fighting pests is to try and make the area presentable as a feeding or breeding ground. Most pests follow humans around for these two reasons. If they know that they can get food during the winter in your area, you can be sure that they will find little places where they will hide out and wait the winter out using your home as a feeding spot.
Another reason why they follow humans is that they can breed there and increase their population to crazy amounts where after they do they can cause havoc to your crops or other things.
The best way to prevent many pest situations is to cut the problem in the bud.
– If you have a garden pull out the plants that are weak. They usually attract pests that will feed on them. Cut your losses short and throw the plant that is infected
– Fertilize your soil with natural fertilizer so you can make plants that have a higher resistance factor
– Have different plants close to one another. Many insect pests are specific to individual plants. If you have many different plants, the insects won’t find your place hospitable for them
– Keep your crow areas free of weeds and water them in the morning so they don’t encourage insects to breed during the day
Keep some insects as help
Many insects eat other insects but won’t harm your plants. Ladybugs and praying mantis are some of them. Find out which insect will feed on the insects that are most likely to attack your crop and don’t kill those insects.
