Make Your Garden Looking Nice By Eliminating Pests
Even though you will never have a completely pest-free garden, you can largely protect the results of your labours by taking appropriate action. What normally makes it difficult is that insects hide from predators, under fallen leaves, weed growth, and soil. One of the earliest things you need to do is eliminate the places where the insects live. Get rid of the weeds, the old leaves, and any decaying matter that the insects want to live in. Regularly, you should be turning the dirt over, and breaking up the clumps. This can help eliminate any hiding locations in the soil.
Recognizing that holes are chewed into your plants since you last checked out them is quite a nasty surprise. The damage has typically been a result of pests. Sometimes the destruction may have been carried out by moles, but the usual rascals are birds, worms and slugs, closely followed by snails and caterpillars.
Pests must be taken out without delay if you want to keep up with the good health and look of your garden. They will become entrenched when not destroyed immediately. The value of your home is enhanced by a robust, well looked after garden.
Bugs that eat your plants and diseases that disfigure and obliterate them should also be suppressed with dormant spray. February or March is a good time for this, simply because then is the dormant period for plants. The directions must be used exactly to ensure the dormant spray functions properly. You could potentially see your whole garden die due to careless use of the spray. Keep in mind that you will also find insects that benefit your garden, and these you want to keep. Aside from the insects, an additional problem comes from those pesky birds. Attempting to chase them away isn’t going to do much good, but a solution you might try is to put up a bird feeder. Let the birds feast on what you have within your feeder instead of what’s in your garden. Birds lively around a feeder will look and sound attractive, and ultimately this will likely also cost less than other solutions.
Even though having a dog might possibly be helpful, it certainly is not going to fix the situation entirely. For some garden owners their unique garden pest will be the mole. The signs that they can indeed be around are dying plants and little hills of soil. These little critters certainly understand how to make a nuisance of themselves. These small-tailed fellows are occasionally white, but most often brown or black, and vary in length from 5 to 14 inches. One way of getting rid of them is by trapping. You need to get good results by properly setting the traps in their tunnels. Removing moles might also be attempted by setting off smoke bombs in the entrances to their tunnels.
