A few different types come to mind when you think of an invasive pest. The most common is the mosquito, and they can be found anywhere around the world. The second common pest is the spider, and they do tend to show up in places where there are dense populations of humans in general, such as urban areas. Then there are annoying pests like ants and slugs that show up in your garden. Ants are usually more of a nuisance than an actual threat to your yard. The following are methods of Getting Rid of Garden Bugs.
Use Bug Sprays
Using a bug spray as a mosquito control to kill mosquitos and black flies can help a lot, but these sprays contain chemicals like DEET, so it is always best to check the label before using it. Just keep in mind that the chemical can stay in your skin and cause a rash and itchiness.
Use Netting to Stop Pests from Entering Your Yard
You can prevent insects from entering your yard by using netting. The best thing about using this method is that you do not have to use a lot of chemicals because you are doing all the work yourself. The disadvantage of this method is that it may not be effective if your pest problem is more widespread, and if there is a fast-moving insect like an ant. It’s a good idea to try different methods until you find which ones are effective.
Kill the Insects During Your Garden’s Winter
The advantage of this method is that you do not have to use a lot of pesticides because the insects are dormant. The disadvantage is that it’s not effective for pests such as slugs, snails, and ants because they may come back when winter ends.
Be Sure to Keep Your Garden Clean and Tidy
Keeping your garden clean can help you get rid of pests. You will have to spray less because flying insects like aphids and leaf-hoppers cannot lay eggs in a clean garden. You will also get rid of pests like ants, spiders, and snails once you remove the things that they use as shelter. Simply removing the clutter within your garden can help you get rid of the pests if you don’t want to use pesticides.
Conclusively, it’s a good idea to check your garden regularly and remove these insects before they can reproduce. This will effectively get rid of them and help you on killing the pests that are troubling you.
