How to Protect Your Plants

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Friday, August 26

Plants growing in your garden have a danger of being attacked by insects and pests. It is important to keep a constant vigilance and take necessary steps to get rid of the harmful pests and insects. These pests and insects are also capable of spreading plant diseases while moving from one plant to the other. However, keeping on the watch can turn out to be very useful to protect your plants from these dangerous predators.

Using certain techniques could save your plants from insects and pests upto a certain level. Prevention, supervision and intervention whenever required are the key factors that can help immensely. As a gardener, you should know about the acceptable pest level as it is almost impossible to get rid of pests entirely because doing so may not be economically viable and also may not be safe for the environment. You should always remove the plants which are infected by harmful diseases and try using plants which are locally grown. You can also monitor plants by inspecting and identifying pests in your garden. It is important to intervene by using mechanical approach of using tools like traps for rats, hand picking or by using shovels for digging insects out where they breed. This kind of method is also known as Integrated Pest Management and it is being widely used. It is an ecological approach of reducing pests and insects upto an acceptable extent.

Apart from insects and pests there are other larger animals which may try to enter the garden and ruin your plants. The best way to get rid of animals is using fence, barbed wires or gauge field fence which can be purchased from hardware shops or garden shops. These are some of the ways that can be really helpful in protecting your plants and keeping them safe.
