Steps I take to avoid a pest problem
1. Walk the garden daily – this lets you know what is going on in the garden. I try to do this every morning, before I leave for work. I wall around and see what is growing and how it is doing.
2. Weed your garden- now I have many garden boxes, weed sometime becomes a lot of work so I try to do it daily (one box each day). By weeding I see what is in the box and I scare away bugs.
3. Research – on my Facebook- Pa Gardeners page I am always adding information I find on the internet. I share it with you guys so you can know more about what you are planting. If you know the bugs that will g after the plant you are planting you will be able to know them while you are weeding and find them easier.
Here is a Free Book (4/22/13) on pest, download it and get some information on the bugs that want to eat your crops and how to get rid of them.
How are you getting rid of the bugs in your garden?
