When it comes to lawn care and gardening, there is one thing you have to understand, not all bugs are bad, some of them are even essential to keeping a good garden. It is surprising how many so called gardening enthusiasts do not know this and throw pesticides around the garden like it was water. It is time for our readers to have a little understanding about the balance of your garden’s ecosystem. To start let me tell you a little story, and experience of mine back when I was new to the whole gardening world.
Termites are a pain to get rid of…
A few years back I started doing some landscaping in my garden, utilizing everything that was already there to save up on cost. It was both lucky and unlucky of me to find out that the old shed was infested with termites, after consulting a few of the top rated pest control companies in USA, I was advised that I was to treat the whole property to make sure to avoid any places that we might miss and my house becoming termite chow. Though it was not necessary I opted to tenting my house and getting the whole pest control package, thinking that it would be better to get it done so I wouldn’t have to worry about any other pests trying to invade my house.
After the treatment and a few days away from the house to clear out the toxic fumes, I returned to my house and continued my old routine. The natural beauty of the garden seems to be missing something, and after weeks it seemed like the plants were not as glowing as it used to be. I discovered that I not only killed the bad bugs but the ones necessary for the small ecosystem of my garden. Though they returned after some time, it took a while.
It seemed as though I had forgotten what I learned in school. I recalled my old grade school text book with the funny little cartoon illustrations, where almost everything living in the environment had a job to do to make the whole thing work. I unwittingly and needlessly unleashed chemicals that destroyed that fragile cycle, which made it hard for my plants to go about with its life.
Not to Worry
You don’t have to worry about leaving the nasty bugs be for the sake of your garden. After researching a bit, I discovered that there are that there are companies that use ecofriendly pesticides, though they are not perfect they are way better than the nasty stuff those other companies use. There are actually a lot of them now, due to the fact that people are aware now and make sure to do things the green way.
If you ever need to find an ecofriendly pest control company, a simple Google search will show you the best ones in your area. In fact we will probably do a review in the future to show you which is the best choice. Until then, keep on searching!
