Make Your Garden Looking Healthy By Getting Rid Of Pests
Even though you will not have a completely pest-free garden, you can largely preserve the results of your labours by taking appropriate action. The thing that makes it difficult is that insects hide from predators, under fallen leaves, weeds, and soil. Your first line of attack must be to eliminate their hiding places as much as possible. Get rid of the rotting matter, the leaves and weeds that provide shelter to the insects. You need to turn the soil on a regular basis, taking care to break up the clods. This can help eliminate any hiding areas in the soil.
The toughest thing there is with regards to having a garden is walking out to check on your plants and uncovering holes in all the plants that looked fine the last time you saw them. Many of these holes which have wrecked your plants are from pests. Wildlife, slugs, and worms are many of the garden pests that are the worst, in addition to snails, caterpillars and even moles.
Pests should be taken out without delay if you want to take care of the good health and look of your garden. They will become entrenched if not destroyed immediately. A back garden adds to a house when you keep it up, and keep it in good shape.
To help keep the diseases and destructive insects under control, you should also use dormant spray. You want to do this in February or March, when your plants are dormant. You have to stick to the correct instructions, or the dormant spray won’t do any good. If you do it wrong, you are liable to get rid of your entire garden. Just as some insects are bad for your garden, there are others that are beneficial, and so try and retain them. There is another class of garden pest, that lives not on the ground but around the sky – birds. A bird feeder might be an effective substitute for the futile exercise of trying to scare them away. Rather than to let them feast upon your garden produce, give them bird food in your feeder. Not only will a feeder look great, but it will also be cheaper over time.
Although acquiring a dog would be helpful, it certainly is not going to fix the situation entirely. For some garden owners their unique garden pest is the mole. If you have dying plants and discover small heaps of pushed-up soil then you’ll know they’re around. These little animals certainly have learned to make a nuisance of themselves. These small-tailed fellows are sometimes white, but most often brown or black, and vary in length from 5 to 14 inches. One method of getting rid of them is via trapping. Successfully capturing them includes finding the tunnels of the moles and putting the trap in the right place. Smoke bombs set off close to the tunnel entry and spreading throughout the tunnels will hopefully get the moles.
