Pests are a natural element in every lawn and garden. Usage of artificial and chemical pesticides can lead to contamination of food chain and local watercourses. Consider garden pest controls like barriers and traps for getting rid of insects effectively. Barriers like dichotomous earth, ash or the mineral Borax are difficult for bugs to crawl. Set up beer or shade traps for slugs. Beer traps are a great way to get rid of slugs and the after-party dregs. Slugs crawl under in the heat of the day and you can trap and remove them later. Natural, insecticidal soap sprays made with water and Ivory soap or Murphy Oil Soap help get rid of aphids, mites and mealy bugs. You can also sprinkle chili powder or cayenne pepper at the base of your plants. This method can kill the good insects too. Taking care of your lawn is essential to natural pest control.
