Gardeners have the habit of using chemical pesticides to kill unwanted insects and weeds whenever pests attack their conventional garden. These products often pose risks to people, pets and other organisms found in the ecosystem. Organic methods are safe to use and often derived from plant and mineral sources. Organic growing relies on a method known as integrated pest management. Organic gardeners control the pest through maintaining plant health and resistance to damage, handpicking and trapping of pests, encouragement of natural predators, and disruption of the pest's environment and application of organic pesticides. Organic insecticides break down faster, making them safer for use on food plants. Handpicking weeds will control these pests, but extensive existing problems may require herbicides. Organic pesticides are safe and make sure that you read the labels closely before using it in your organic garden.
It is up to you to live an organic and eco-friendly life.
