Use Nature to Rid your Garden of Pests

Having a garden is a wonderful way to relax and spend time with your family on those long summer nights. Not only that, but the health benefits you can gain from growing your own food is fairly exciting, as well.

But there comes a time in every garden when the pests such as bugs and insects will start to invade and make quick work of everything you worked so hard to grow. This is one of the downfalls of having your own garden. But fear not; there are ways around these issues.

One thing you can do is dump a bunch of that nasty chemical insecticide on your plants and then spend hours trying to wash it off before you eat anything. It’s not a good idea to do that especially when you consider the health risks that are involved with using chemicals on your plants. So, what should you do then?

If there was only a natural way of getting rid of all those pests without risking the health of you and your family. Well, there are natural ways of stopping those pests from destroying everything you have done in your garden.

If you notice you are having issues with slugs in your garden, you can either pour a bunch of slat on everything, or simply attract frogs and toads to your garden. Frogs and toads love water and, if you build a small pond or pool that maintains fresh water, they will move on in and help take care of the slug population for you.

You should also have plenty of lady bugs lying in wait for all those aphids that will show up. Lady bugs can eat a large amount of aphids and keep them from draining your plants of the vital water and nutrients they need to survive.

There are many more options that you can use to attract natural bugs and animals to your garden that will be highly beneficial and keep all the bad insects away. There are even a few plants that you can place around your garden strategically that will help in warding off certain spiders and insects. It takes some research, but you will find they work well.
