Gardening Pest Control Just Like The Pros

Author : Derek Farley


Maintaining a healthy garden today takes time, effort, patience and know how all the while trying not to spend a fortune while doing so to be productive as well. One factor is by the control of pests in the garden. A garden pest is defined in Wikipedia as "generally an insect, plant, or animal that engages in activity that the gardener considers undesirable." Gardening has grown more than just a social stature or something that has been taken on as just a mere hobby.

In today's economy, many people grow gardens to supplement their food rather than buying it at the local store. By controlling the pests within the garden, we save time and money. Here are a few tips on how to control that unwanted pest that haunts many of the gardens today. One tip is to choose your plants carefully. Don't purchase too many plants of the same kind that attract the same pest. For example, by planting all corn you are to expect grubs that attack the roots, corn borers which attack the stalk and ears, and crows which attack the ears as well.

By choosing this plant you will need chemical as well as outside stimulus to rid yourself of these pests. It take many different measures in gardening than by just buying a plant and sticking it in the ground. Another way to control pests is to arm yourself any way you can. By choosing the right chemical for the right pest will save you money in the long run and that way you will not be stuck with having chemicals that you don't need. Putting up rabbit fencing will not only keep rabbits at bay, but most likely squirrels and skunks who are also bothersome pests. Another way to control pests that can be controlled humanely is done by using mechanical traps.

Be warned though, by using mechanical traps means to trap the pest alive and can be just as harmful to you by releasing them back into the wild! They are wild animals and will defend themselves whenever and wherever they can. Trapping a live skunk or a live raccoon is a very dangerous thing. Animals will fight back if they feel threatened in any way and I would not want to be on the receiving end of a skunk that feels threatened. The important thing to understand in using pest control while gardening is using common sense. Do not do anything to your garden that would put a risk at your life. Gardening is a fun thing to do, don't jeopardize that by doing the wrong thing.
