Effective Way To Deal With Garden Pests

Dec 23, 2007
We all know that one of the most disgusting things that can happen in gardening is to deal with garden pests. Sometimes, we are always guarding every petal of our flowering plants just to make it sure that they will be safe from attacks. Too often, we fail on this and we just see out plants having holes made by these pests. Slugs, worms, caterpillars, snails, are some pests that we have to deal with. Though, we can not make our garden to be totally pest-free, still it is better that you do something to even just minimize their damage.

One of the worst things that your garden may have are insects; they can live beneath the soil, piles of leaves or old weeds or in any other area. To be able to eliminate garden pests, or even just lessen them, on thing that you must do is to put out all things that can be used by these insects as their shelter. You need to remove old leaves, weeds and any other foreign matter. This garden pest control is effective for your garden improvement.

Another garden pest control strategy is, by using dormant way to keep under control destructive insects. It is best effective to use dormant spray for your dormant plants, this is usually on, between February and March. Dormant spray can make wonder for your garden. However, it needs to follow correctly all the instructions to wipe-out insects effectively.

Another pest problem, aside from insects, are birds. Sometimes, I found my self chasing them away but then, they are still returning. One thing you can do to deal with birds is to put bird feeder somewhere in your garden to divert there attention from destroying your garden because they eat what is in the bird feeder instead. Not only can bird feeder keep birds outside your garden but they can also add attraction.

If you see mount of dirt within your yard and your plants are slowly dieing, then gopher can be expected to have hit your garden. One effective method to get deal with this insect is to set traps. By locating their locations, their tunnel, you can set-up you gopher trapping device. Another way to control this kind of insect is to utilize smoke bombs, place them in the gopher tunnel to spread smoke in their hide-outs. You can also make an organic garden pest control.

If you think that your garden is being attacked with garden pests, do your best to establish a garden pest control strategy to make your garden free from this problem and achieve your goal.
