Natural, Perpetual Garden Pest and Critter Control


| 7/9/2013 2:31:00 PM


Perhaps the most discouraging aspect of gardening is when critters eat, trample or uproot overnight a lush and leafy crop just ready for picking. The garden raiders may be deer, rabbits, squirrels, turtles, birds, armadillos, raccoon, mice or even neighboring cattle, just to name a few of the usual culprits.

Author and public speaker Rick Austin, the Survivalist Gardener, has learned a few tricks to combat these garden pests once and for all. Not only has Rick sown a perennial garden —the kind you plant once and harvest for a lifetime— but he’s also incorporated a perpetual, organic infrastructure of pest control. path

“There are no artificial pesticides in nature,” Rick told me when I called his Appalachian home recently to chat about gardening.

The so called "pests" have every reason (like us..) to retain some parts or selectively complete plants for future crop.  Example: the "pesty" gophers working underground are very selective and in there process actually create the most ideal irrigation system one requires for watering your plants.  We tend to see these critters as "pests" and fail to understand the benifits they may provide.

Using natural and organic pesticides just makes you feel safer when you have a food garden, and it makes you feel good knowing you are doing your part for the Earth. I get my supplies from http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/natural-organic-c-31.html. I've never had a problem with them.
