Pest Control

Hello Survivors

I once had a garden with a border of wild roses. Every summer it was infested with blue bottles, yeah, that's right, blue bottles and, just in case you're not familiar with the term, blue bottles are massive blue/black flies that would erupt into a cloud, whenever the roses were disturbed. I tried all sorts to get rid, but had to stop spraying chemicals. They weren't working, and the roses were starting to suffer.

A local lady suggested soapy water, dish water to be specific. At the time I thought I might be being teased, but by that time there was nothing to lose.

It worked, and since then I've learned that soapy or oily water will help remove other pests, such as green fly and black fly infestations, and there are many other natural proactive and reactive measures to keep your vegetables and fruit healthy while they grow.

So, if you plan to grow your own organic food, you'll probably want to take a look at this extensive advice page from Sustainable Baby Steps. With this information and the previous blogs about organic grow towers, you should have a sustainable source of free fruit and veg throughout the growing season.

Good luck and keep surviving.
