If you’re a gardener and you haven’t taken our Pest Control Survey, we’re hoping you can spare about 10 minutes to give us your valuable feedback. We’re working on an exciting project to provide region-specific advice about the most common garden pests and the best organic control options.

Click here to take the survey.

Completing the survey can be a great learning experience in itself, potentially introducing you to new organic pest control techniques.

We’ve already had hundreds of gardeners around the Unites States take the survey — check out the interesting results.

If you’d like to provide feedback by taking future gardening surveys, please join our Garden Advisory Group. We greatly appreciate your help and advice, and we wish you happy gardening!

Jason is right on! I did companion planting with my veggies this year, and I didn't have pest one!
