Organic Pest Control Versus Pesticides: Is There a Better Way?
Date:5/16/2013

(PRWEB) May 16, 2013

May is a busy planting month. Gardeners will be getting the vast majority of their seedlings into the ground during May and developing a pest control plan. Otho’s Pest Management, a Pinehurst pest control company, suggests gardeners take some time to consider whether organic pest control is more effective than pesticides and which of the two is best for gardens.

According to the Farmers’ Almanac, May is packed with the best days designated for planting and for pest control. There are many ways to keep pests at bay, but those who prefer a more natural way to keep pests away, are going to find that there really aren’t any organic bug sprays that can match the power of synthetic chemicals.

There are natural ways for insect repellant, like Murphy Oil, hot peppers, and garlic cloves. However effective these may be, they should be used with caution. Some foods like onions and garlic can kill dogs if digested in large quantities, so pet owners should beware.

Certain natural spices and herbs can be used to help get rid of certain unwanted pests. Rosemary, thyme and other spices appear to be potent insect-fighters and could offer a new form of organic pest control. The drawback to these methods is that they do not last long and will need re-application often.

The other thing to consider when using these alternative methods is which bugs will be repelled and which ones are actually beneficial. The Praying mantis, for example is extremely beneficial to a garden ecosystem. They kill moths, mosquitoes and aphids – which are an especially destructive pest. Spiders also prove to be a good garden insect, they also eat invasive bugs.

Right now the safest pest control is to leave it to the experts until more studies can be done to prove a more natural bug kil
