Incorporate Integrated Pest Management
By using natural pest management practices (integrated pest management or IPM), we support the good bugs who help get rid of the bad bugs. Click here for a list of beneficial insects for the garden. One of the key problems with using chemical pesticides and herbicides in the garden is that they don’t differentiate between the good and the bad bugs and kill them all. This actually makes the bad bug problems worse because we kill off Mother Nature’s helpers.
