4 Homemade Organic Pesticide Every Gardener Must Know
Natural Pesticides for Organic Gardening
Several simple measures can reduce pests in your garden. You can block them from your crops by using barriers, row covers, netting, plant collars, and sticky traps--all of which are a little unsightly but effective.
Consider deploying beneficial insects such as ladybugs and praying mantids (available online and at garden supply stores). These, along with other predators like birds and frogs, control pest populations by eating them. Keep a dish of water near your garden; it will attract birds.
If you need to use a pesticide, I recommend nontoxic products such as pyrethrum and neem extract. Read labels carefully to make sure you choose the product that's most effective for the plants you're growing and the pests you're trying to eliminate. Pyrethrum is a mixture of insecticidal compounds found in African chrysanthemums that controls aphids, whiteflies, stinkbugs, and mites. Neem is a nontoxic insect repellent that comes from the seeds and leaves of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica), which is native to India. The extra cost of these products is well worth it.
