Benefits of both organic and chemical pest control

It is vitally important to keep pests at bay in order for your garden to stay in peak condition. Following are the benefits of both organic and chemical pest control in pest control in Oxfordshire. The choice is yours entirely, which method you prefer to keep pests out of your garden.       

Organic pest control 

The one thing that should be remembered about pest control is that complete annihilation is not the way to go. Insects are vital in a garden to keep the ecosystem healthy. They should not be eradicated as they are crucial to the biological system by feeding lizards, birds and other types of wildlife, help with pollination and assist in breaking down compost and soil nutrients. Also, when insects die, they themselves become the compost and soil nutrients that are important to plant growth. Organic pest control methods include the use of diatomaceous earth, neem oil, garlic/oil spray, soapy water, copper, salt and cedar oil, all of which are completely safe for humans, animals, as well as the environment. 

There are several ways in which you can use organic methods to prevent pests from invading your garden. Just three of these include:

  •  Keeping your soil healthy – keep your soil in top condition by using mulch and compost, organic fertilizers, making sure that your plants are planted in the correct place in your garden, and also seeing to it that they are properly watered (not too little, and not too much). Sick plants attract garden pests. 
  • Companion planting – there are tremendous benefits of companion gardening. For instance, garlic is known to keep aphids away from roses, while tomatoes are protected by planting them close to basil. Companion planting is a great, effective way to keep pests out of your garden. 
  • Chemical pest control- Chemicals, also referred to as pesticides, are used in chemical pest control to rid plants of garden pests. These chemicals are designed to kill pests in as short a time possible with some even being developed to prevent pests from ever recurring. With farms being the huge areas they are, chemical pest control is the most efficient method for farmers to get rid of pests in their crops almost instantaneously.
