Natural Pest Control For Garden Vegetables

Did you ever noticed that commercial vegetable pesticides have lot of chemical ingredients in it? Some of them are dangerous to people and pets too. That’s why I prefer to use natural pesticides for my garden vegetables. Organic pesticides are effective, affordable and harmless to use. Unlike synthetic pesticides, they do not pose health and environmental risks. Rather, these pesticides contain essential oil extracts and plant-based materials, which exterminate pests without harming plants or other organisms. When using homemade organic products, be careful when using them near the tomatoes and onion or anywhere in the home. To keep your vegetable garden healthy, you can choose from a number of pure pesticide options available today. Organic gardeners treasure their vegetables and go to great lengths to keep them pest-free. There are numerous ways to do this, but one effective way is to use homemade pesticides.

Natural Pest Control For Garden Vegetables

Hand-Picking Bugs

When you’re picking bugs off of your vegetables, it’s important to remember that it’s best to do so in the morning and evening. This is because many garden pests are nocturnal, which means they sleep during the day and come out at night. In the morning, they’re still sleeping and won’t know what hit them. If you’ve ever had a tick or mosquito bite you may have noticed that they love areas where there is lots of hair—like your scalp! This is why it’s best to pick them off as soon as possible after waking up in order to prevent any bites from happening later on in the day when these pests wake up too.

It’s also very important that after picking off all these bugs from your vegetables (and putting them into a bucket), make sure to wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water before handling anything else because some insects carry diseases like salmonella or E.coli which could make anyone who comes into contact with them sick! Likewise, if someone has cuts on their fingers then wearing gloves would also be recommended since this would keep both parties safe from any bacteria present within those wounds on human skin surface area where mosquitoes lay eggs such as “Aedes” species found here locally in Florida but also other places around world too including South America where malaria-causing parasites often live inside host insects including termite colonies.”

Planting different vegetables together

It’s important to understand how plants interact with each other and what benefits they can provide to one another. For example, it’s a good idea to plant garlic and tomatoes together because they’re both members of the nightshade family. The garlic helps ward off pests that would otherwise attack the tomato plant and vice versa. Similarly, cucumbers benefit from being planted near marigolds because these flowers release a substance called pyrethrum when they are crushed or chewed that acts as an insecticide against cucumber beetles while also repelling aphids, which love eating cucumber leaves!

Use floating row covers

Floating row covers are a fabric that you can use to shield your vegetables from pests and frost. They’re also called insulating row covers, and they’re available at most home and garden stores.

Row covers should be placed over the plants when the nighttime temperatures drop below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to remove them during the day so that they don’t trap too much heat in your vegetable garden. Row covers work best if you are growing your vegetables in containers that can be moved around easily—or if you have an area where you can move the entire container with its contents into a greenhouse or other structure before sunset every evening, then back out onto your deck or patio again in the morning before sunrise (or vice versa).

Growing flowers and herbs

To discourage unwanted pests from your garden, you can grow flowers and herbs that will attract beneficial insects. Ladybugs, predatory wasps, and other beneficial creatures can be found feeding on the pollen or nectar of these plants. Try growing marigolds, basil, lavender or lemon balm as they all offer a wide variety of flowers with varying heights and blooming times so they can be harvested throughout the season.

Set up a bird feeder

Place the bird feeder on a pole, high enough so that it is out of reach of dogs or cats. Hang the feeder and fill it with food such as sunflower seeds, cracked corn or cracked millet. This will attract several species of birds who are natural predators to garden pests.

Clean the feeder regularly to ensure that there are no mold spores in the birdseed, which can cause disease within your flock and be harmful to them in other ways too!

Install a bat box

Bats are amazing creatures that help keep insect populations under control. Unfortunately, bats are also becoming endangered and need our help to survive. If you’re willing to plant a bat box in your garden, they will reward you with free pest control—and it’s easy!

First, locate an area where there is natural tree cover or a cave near your vegetable patch so that the bats can roost safely. A good place to start is underneath a tree branch if there aren’t any caves nearby; if there are no trees in an area of dense vegetation, consider building one yourself using poles covered with netting or fencing material.

Second: Dig a hole two feet deep and wide enough for the bat box itself (which will be about three feet long). Then cut out a piece of plywood slightly larger than the inside dimensions of your homemade bat house and drill several drainage holes in its base before placing it overtop this cavity; use screws or nails through pre-drilled holes from above into this piece so that both pieces become firmly attached together as one unit! Thirdly: Install your completed structure as close as possible near where you want them (within 25 meters) but don’t forget that these little guys need plenty of access points such as cracks between walls etcetera like any other mammal would require too so make sure everything works well together!”

Here are some examples of homemade pesticides:
