Chemical-free Pest Prevention for Your Garden

Looking for a pest-free garden without the use of pesticides? The following tips from HGTVGardens.com and LifeHacker.com might help you keep those pests in line without any toxic sprays.

Crushed Egg Shells: Crush egg shells and leave them on the top layer of soil. This deters larger pests, such as caterpillars and snails, from attacking plants from the ground up.

The Circle of Life: Nature keeps nature in check. For example, ladybugs eat aphids and toads eat slugs. Research how to attract the right predators to your garden so those valiant little critters can gobble up the plant munchers.

Organic DIY Insect Sprays: Do a quick online search for organic recipes that deter pests. Most include common ingredients you’ll find in your pantry, such as garlic, cloves, or hot pepper.

Aromatic Herbs: Many pests hate the smell of yarrow, citronella, mint, fennel, catnip, basil, and lemongrass. Plant these herbs in your garden to keep many of the bad bugs away!

About AmyCraft

I've made a commitment to serve the real estate needs of my community - one family and one home at a time. My real estate knowledge and expertise are completely dedicated to you. I am a Graduate of Champions School of Real Estate and came into the real estate profession with an education background. Prior to working in real estate I was the owner of a successful daycare center. My career as an educator was very rewarding and taught me many things that I believe I have benefited from in the real estate industry. I have learned such things as negotiating with people while always keeping their best interest in mind, listening to what they are saying, maintaining flexibility and understanding, performing multiple tasks simultaneously and how to be assertive yet remaining calm under the most stressful situations. A real estate deal may be the biggest financial transaction a person will ever make. I try to respond to peoples concerns and fears with as much information as I can provide. Most importantly, I want to make sure my clients are comfortable with a certain price range rather than trying to push the pre-approved amount on them. I'm not a pushy Realtor, but I'm aggressive when it comes to getting my clients what they want. Whether you're looking to buy or sell, I can get your home sold, or find you the home you've been dreaming of. Either way, my goal is to make your experience comfortable, guided, fast, and efficient. After all "Nobody Knows The Area Better Than A Good Neighbor".
