Insect and Pest Control: How to Go About It Naturally With Garlic
You should deal with insect or pest control in a careful and deliberate manner. Before you go gassing your house, it’s best that you take the more all-natural route when it comes to dealing with pests. The reason behind that is because the last thing you want to do is poison yourself, your little children, and your pets along with the insects that are all over your home. Global warming is an ever-growing problem at present, such that you also don’t want to contribute to it by spraying all sorts of nasty chemicals in your home and your local ecosystem. You should be more ecologically aware, because otherwise, you’ll end up doing more harm than good with your intention of ridding yourself of mosquitoes, termites, moths, cockroaches, and centipedes. One other reason why you should be careful what you spray in your home is because of allergic responses to pesticides. It’s hard to deal with things specifically made to be poisonous in a careful or safe manner. Your children could already be directly affected by ingesting mothballs or roach hotels. Your pets don’t know any better either. Natural solutions to pest-control problems work best because they’re the safer different.
You won’t have to end up choking in insecticide if you have natural pesticide solutions that are proven safe for the world at large and families in particular. Organizations are already underway to banning unhealthy pesticides like DDT, so a little research on the natural enemies of insects will go a long way. You should realize that what those pesticides do to pests, they could also do to humans, as evidenced by the pesticide poisoning deaths you’ve heard about all over the news. They’re also to blame for various neurological and immune disorders such as Hodgkin’s, Alzheimer’s, and certain cancers. It’s better to plant garlic around your tomatoes in order to deal with red spider mites than spraying insecticides on your tomatoes and ruining them for consumption. It’s also a wise decision to use garlic juice on your sweet potato plants to keep animals from digging them up and chewing on them. Indeed, garlic is such an all-around natural pesticide that you can spray it around ponds or use it to water your gardens to keep mosquitoes away. You can already get a do-it-yourself mosquito repellant by mixing garlic juice with oil and dabbing it on yourself. Caterpillars also hate the combination of red pepper and garlic. Meanwhile, moths dislike wormwood mixed with garlic.
