Chemicals hard to get rid of


We’ve been warned over and over again that we should wash our fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating them. You can do that all you like, and you still won’t get the chemicals all off. 


Not only that, growing in chemical invested soil, these same fruits and vegetables have got chemicals in them, so you have to wonder what goodness you’re ingesting by diligently consuming what you believe to be a healthy diet. 


There are some chemicals that don’t break down easily in a person’s body and they can actually cause a person liver damage. With organic pest control, you don’t have this concern. 


Plants thrive in unaffected soil


By ensuring your flowers, herbs and vegetables are being protected with organic pest control treatments, you can be ensuring that they grow in unaffected soil. After all, you want beneficial insects in your garden as they diligently devour garden pests. 


With nutrient-rich soil that isn’t hampered by chemicals and with plants that aren’t affected by insects, your plants will flourish and be stronger and sturdier. 


Apart from using organic pest control treatments, a good tip is also to look for those plant varieties that are pest-resistant. You’ll have fewer problems in your garden and healthier plants.


Manual pest control for small gardens


Never resort to chemical pesticides. There are some gardeners who are so aware of the dreadful consequences of chemicals that they will rather don garden gloves and manually work at removing certain pests off the plants.  

They make use of strong-scented herbs like garlic to ward off marauding garden pests. Of course, this can be done in a neighborhood garden but not in parks or farms.

In a small garden, it is still possible to check the undersides of leaves, where you will often find insect egg sacs. Plucking the pests off plants by hand can be non-toxic and effective for controlling pests, but it can be labor-intensive for larger areas. 

Understanding the scientific makeup of pests and plants

Some organic pesticides can be made at home. But before you go using any homemade concoction willy nilly in your entire home and garden, it should be tested just to make sure it doesn’t kill everything. 

It’s why it is so useful to hire the services of a skilled, professional organic pest controller as they know the exact green products to combine to prevent pests. The ingredients they use are derived from natural substances. The technician understands the scientific makeup of plants and pests. A trained person has all the knowledge on organic compounds that will repel insects while being safe for homes with kids and pets.
