Non chemical pest management!
    #4458934 - 07/27/05 05:48 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I would like to share a great site with you!
It a great database with most of the pests. It provides a lot of information about ecological ways of dealing with pests.
These ways are much calmer than most insecticides (and stuff) but they are way healthier and they don?t disturb your gardens eco system.
Disturbance may occur if you mist against a pest and you kill useful insects as well!

I personally managed to fight spider mites with lacewing ( green flying insect attracted by the light)

The site :

It worths a visit! Try to use the menus (on the left) in order to get more specific info!

For unrestricted use, the West has permitted alcohol and tobacco;
all other chemical Doors in the Wall are labeled Dope,
and their unauthorized takers are Fiends.

A Pest diagnostic i discovered by mistake:

Cut in half juicy leaves of a succulent/caci (i use Pereskiopsis) in a way they have a big internal suface exposed.Use leaves fro plants not watered in the past days so the juice the leaves produce is somewhat sticky. Place those leaves on the soil of the plant that you think might be infected. Leave overnight and check next morning. If you have very small/hard to spot bugs that love plant jucies they will have gathered there and stuck because for some reason they are attracted to it.Now you can look at which invader you have and check it out at the pest map.

Maybe even a "trap" could be devised based on the attraction of sticky plant juices...

Ammonia attracts/traps a variety of insects as well.
