Environmentally Safe Methods Of Pest Control
Nobody wants pests in their gardens and flowerbeds. They can eat on vegetables or strip flowers off the stems. Treating the pests has to be done in a way that won’t harm plants or humans, yet will protect our precious vegetables and flowers. We know we must be good to the environment and can’t just spray everything with chemicals we can’t even pronounce. So we must look at ‘natural’ pest control solutions.
If we want to spend all of our time in the garden, physically removing the pests is the best natural way to get pests under control. Either picking the bugs and insects off of the plants or creating barriers at the base or over the whole area or filling in holes where pests are entering the area. The problem is, they seem to always find another way in. If snails are eating at plants, they can generally be found where it is damp and hiding under rocks and bricks near foliage that is strap like. Please visit this website
