Protecting Your Garden Against Insects

It’s difficult to protect your house from pests, and it’s even harder to protect your garden.

Here are a few simple ways you can avoid insect pest problems and keep your garden thriving!

Plant your garden properly

A healthy garden with no insects in NevadaOne of the few things you can do to prevent insect pests before your garden blooms is giving your plants enough room to breathe. When creating your garden, it’s easy to get caught up in planting as much as you can and forgetting that these plants need room to grow! Also, a tightly-packed garden is appealing to insects searching for shelter from heat and predators. Leave room between your plants for a breeze and those pests will have to find a home somewhere else.

When you water your garden makes a difference

It’s vital to pest prevention that you give your plants a deep watering in the morning. This will not only hydrate your plants in preparation for the morning sunlight, but it will keep them from wilting during the hottest parts of the day. And a wilted and distressed plant poses as a delicious meal to insects. Additionally, this will give your plants the rest of the day to dry off! Damp plants are the best homes for several garden pests that you won’t want moving in.

Attracts other animals to your garden

Yes, you read that right! If you’re experiencing many pesky insects around your garden, it’s time to bring in some reinforcements. Add a bowl of water to make your garden more attractive to frogs and toads that will gladly take care of those bugs for you. Or take to the skies and enlist some birds to nibble on the insects.
