Control Of Harmful Garden Insects by Owen Jones

Growing robust and healthy plants is a very rewarding hobby and a way of making some money. However, it involves protecting your plants from backyard insects like aphids, mealy bugs, ants, black fly, red spider mite and others.
These pests need to be controlled on a regular and persistent basis. Most of them are quite frail in nature and may be killed by touch alone.
Because they breathe through holes in their exoskeleton, water can be both a giver and taker of life for them. Steps can easily be taken, say, adding oil, tobacco or even merely detergent to block their pores and prevent air getting in.
So, identification of the species and knowledge of the life-cycles of these garden insects becomes essential from the point of view of finding organic, natural ways of getting rid them. It is important to note that some can be controlled effectively whilst others cannot.
For instance, moths that easily fly away cannot be effectively tackled, whereas in their state as a caterpillar or chrysalis they can be killed.
Again we might find it difficult to fully control chafer grubs that feed and hibernate under the soil, while cockchafers or rose chafer can be easily destroyed at sunset and dawn and then shaken out of rose bushes the next day.
The importance of knowledge increases further during bad weather conditions, when we not only have to cope with additional backyard insects like flies and maggots, but also have to take care to make certain that the plants get enough water and nutrition.
One of the simplest, but most effective ways to save backyard plants from chemicals and control harmful backyard insects, is the use of organic pesticides on a regular basis, say, once a week or couple of weeks.
Replace the use of pesticide sprays with your second-hand household washing-up water. This will help kill both the pests and their eggs too.
Insecticides could be the best answer for the control of harmful garden insects, but it is best to be careful to avoid excessive chemicals and begin the eradication of harmful backyard insects on a gradual basis.
It is best to start on one plant at a time and then observe how the plant reacts to the organic insecticide preparation.
A 24-hour observation interval will give an idea whether a weaker preparation needs to be used to prevent further loss or harm. Post pesticide control is important, so monitor the results of your insecticide and if it has not worked, burn the plant or try again with a stronger mixture.
You might be surprised to know that feeding harmful backyard insects proves more economical as feeding them assists to arrest their breeding cycle in the same or future season. This is especially the case of Turnip fly and snails.
Many growers of dahlias and other flowers plant lettuce along side these flowering plants. Slugs and snails prefer lettuce to other foods and so eat them first.. Furthermore, lettuce serves as a trap for snails and slugs so that they may be easily caught and destroyed
