Understanding Natural Pest Control Instead of chemical pest control, the natural pest control is proven to be less expensive and effective than buying and applying chemical pesticides and, besides, it’s safer for your family, your pets, your garden, and your environment. Natural pest control is best applied to prevent insect damage in the garden and field crops and the best approach is to discourage harmful insects from coming in the first place, following varying methods, such as: pulling out any weak plants; building healthy, organic soil; using seaweed mulch or spray; minimize insect habitat; inter-planting and rotating crops; and keeping foliage dry. Weak plants are susceptible to be infected by predators and, if they are not removed in the garden and among field crops, they may likely infect other plants. Building healthy, organic soil by natural composting methods, mulching and top-dressing the soil with compost or natural fertilizer is a good way to grow strong plants which can resist harmful insects.
Because of the rich contents of elements in seaweeds, like iron, zinc, barium, calcium, sulfur and magnesium, such that when seaweeds are used to fertilize plants, they promote the healthy development of plants making them able to withstand diseases and infection of insects and slugs, and seaweed fertilizer in mulch or spray form can give plants the strength to resist diseases caused by insect infection.

The reason why harmful insects breed in the garden and field is due to the presence of weeds and debris, which can be breeding places for insects, so make it a habit of regularly pulling the weeds, clearing the debris, and using clean mulch. Inter-planting method, which is planting mix plants or crops or rotating the planting of crops each year help to avoid re-infestation of pests and the reason for this is that insect pests are plant specific. A constantly wet foliage encourages insect and fungal damage to the plants, therefore, wet accordingly at an early time so plants are kept dry most of the day or apply drip-irrigation, which is delivering water to the root systems of plants. When you’re using your garden tools with infested plants, disinfect them afterwards to reduce the speed of invading insects. By using beneficial insects to prey on harmful insects and their larvae, this can be also an effective way to applying natural pest control, and these insects are: wasps, ladybugs, lacewings, hover-flies, praying mantis, and nematodes. The flowers of these plants, carrots, celery, parsley, caraway and Queen Anne’s lace, attract wasps and when they get to visit these plants, they destroy the leaf-eating caterpillars, and since these plants are easy to grow, some should be left for these wasps. These harmful insects, such as aphids, mites, whiteflies and scale are eaten by ladybugs, especially if these harmful insects are around such plants, like daisies, tansy or yarrow, which attract a lot of ladybugs.
