Garden Pests

Garden pests prove to be a problem for many people when it comes to keeping a healthy garden.  While you do many things to keep pesky mosquitoes at bay, there are many other pests that take a little more effort to control.  There are those pesky mealy bugs that excrete honeydew, and that in turn attracts ants.  They are fuzzy in appearance and their size varies between 1/6 to ¼ inch in length.  They have a diet that consists mainly of juice that they suck out of plants.

Organic Sprays

There is a wide variety of options when you are trying to choose the best type of organic spray. Aphids are small insects that feed off of the juices of plants. They can cause a great deal of damage to plants, especially if they are present in large numbers. The term aphid refers to a category of insect, and encompasses thousands of species of bugs.
