How to Protect My Trees & Shrubs
If you’re seeing pests currently or you want to guard against them, you have a few options when it comes to the actions you can take against damaging insects and pests.
If you have plenty of time on your hands, you can literally remove the pests by hand (no pun intended). This treats the symptom but not the cause. You can see how labor intensive this kind of practice could be, especially if you have a lawn of more than a couple of tenths of an acre.
There are a range of options for pest solutions that are environmentally friendly. The trick is this — not all bugs are bad. Some of them are quite necessary for the survival of your lawn and for your plants to really thrive.
Consult a lawncare expert before applying any pest control solution to your plants or soil.
Natural solutions include:
- Neem oil
- Soapy water
- Alcohol spray
- Tobacco-Water solution
- Beer & Citrus Fruit
- Pepper Spray
