Garden Pests

Gardening would be a great deal simpler without interference from garden pests. Most garden pests are small, but they certainly are a big nuisance. The majority of common garden pests are insects, of course and it is a funny thing that these insects are apt to prosper in circumstances that are not quite right for flowers.

The majority of garden pests do not actually live on the plants themselves, they live in rotting rubbish nearby or in sodden soil and go to the plant to feed. Some insects live in the roots if the earth is too wet.

So, one of the first things to do is to try to lessen the number of harmful insects in your garden. You can go a long way down this route by clearing away any old decaying rubbish and decayed wood. Make sure that your soil is well drained and keep cats out of your garden by squirting them with a water pistol until they get the message. Cats discourage birds and many birds feed on insects.

You should also support insects and other animals that feed on garden pests. Ants can be a pain, but they do feed on a lot of insects. Ladybirds do too and so do spiders. Larger animals such as frogs, toads and lizards eat heaps of insects, so a small open-ended garden pond could be used to breed frogs and toads. Lizards will come on their own, if the circumstances are perfect.
