While most conventional pesticides are safe if used judiciously and according to label directions, why use toxins in the garden if there are alternative options?
Organic methods can be very effective when used preventively or before pest populations become too large. Unfortunately organics are less effective when used after a pest population has become large and well established.
For the best results when using organic pest control methods it is important that you spend time observing your garden and implementing cultural methods that work in harmony with organic solutions. Cultural methods include correct plant choices and placement, soil amendments, proper watering methods and garden sanitation.
