Avoid harsh pest control in your garden with a variety of all natural methods. Hand picking beetles or leaf munching caterpillars from your vegetables may seem like a lot of work, but there’s no doubt that it gets the job done. You can also apply a mixture of dish soap with water to the leaves of your plants to help kill any pests. However, make sure to do early in the day, rinsing the leaves with water soon after or the sun may burn the leaves of your plants. Garlic oil and hot pepper spray are also well known for getting a handle on pest problems in the garden.
