How to Design a Perennial Garden : Pest Control in a Perennial Garden


Now every garden does have there form of pest
whether it would be in the form of little creatures that run around or bugs. Now on
this plant this walking stick which I showed you previously you look really close you see
this little webbing and this of course is Japanese beetles. This being the first year
I had this plant I was not expecting this but when they appeared I was not surprise.
And what I would often times do with Japanese beetles is I simple pick them off and squish
them. I mean there are many kinds of sprays and traps and everything in the market some
of those actually attract the beetles to your plants if they have a particular smell that
the beetle likes they would come. Or sometimes they just sit here cause they like the taste
of this plant like they would come. Or sometimes they are just here cause they like the taste
of this plant so I find that the best thing to do is to just come out in the mornings
and I will take them with my fingers and I just squish them and get rid of them and that
is probably the best you would do with Japanese beetles. Now you have to be aware of moles
and molds that might grow might trace underground and just keep track of your bugs and you ground
and in your lawn that is where those little 4 legged creatures run around. So if you keep
a healthy lawn lots of time you would have healthy flowers.
