Naturally growing an abundant fruit tree or a vegetable garden could not be easier when you choose to use homemade, natural pesticides. Homemade pesticides are safe for the environment, animals, and humans. Whether on your backyard or commercial farm, homemade pesticides are just as effective as commercially available ones at killing and repelling bugs and pests from fruit trees and plants (especially if made with organic ingredients). As a matter of fact, homemade pesticides cost only pennies compared to what it would cost you to purchase them from the store. Fruit trees are the essence of nature’s bounty. Freshly picked grapes, cherries and peaches make us feel like in heaven. A simple stroll around your backyard during spring makes you eager to find out what’s growing on your trees. That’s when you realise that fruit infestation is spoiling all the fun.
Natural Pesticide For Fruit Plants
Good quality fruit can only be obtained from healthy and productive plants. Therefore, it is necessary to apply insecticides and pesticides in order to prevent the prevailing insects and diseases. However, the use of chemical pesticides is not favorable since their residues may adversely affect the health of humans and animals that consume these fruits. In this article, we are going to discuss natural pesticide for fruit plants
Pesticides are used by farmers and gardeners to control pests, weeds and diseases. They are also known as bio-pesticides since they do not contain any synthetic chemicals. These pesticides can be made from naturally occurring substances such as plants, minerals or animals. Some common types of natural pesticides include:
- Natural Pesticides (Bio-pesticides)
- Homemade Pesticides
- Home-brewed Pesticide Solutions
Neem oil is extracted from the seeds of the neem tree. Neem oil has been used as a pesticide in India for centuries, and more recently it has been found to be effective in controlling pests such as aphids, mites, nematodes and whiteflies. It is generally considered safe for use around pets but keep your pets out of areas where you have sprayed neem oil until it dries (about one hour).
To prepare a neem solution: Mix 1 part neem oil with 4 parts water. For example: 2 tablespoons of neem oil mixed with 8 tablespoons water makes 16 oz of spray solution that will be effective against sucking insects (aphids) on plants up to 2 feet away; this amount can also be diluted down to use on vegetables such as cucumbers or peppers if needed. To use your sprayer, simply fill one-half cup or less at a time and shake well before each use.
Diatomaceous earth is a fossilized remains of diatoms, which are single celled aquatic algae. Diatomaceous earth is a great natural pesticide and it can be used around the house for an array of purposes.
Diatomaceous earth is effective because it absorbs oils from insects that come in contact with it, which kills them by drying them out and causing dehydration. Diatomaceous earth also acts as an abrasive to kill any pests that come into contact with it by causing tiny cuts on the insect’s body when they touch it.
Diatomaceous earth is non-toxic to humans or other animals when used correctly although some people may experience mild side effects such as skin irritation if they handle too much at once or if they ingest too much over long periods of time
Neem cake is a natural pesticide that can be used as an alternative to chemical pesticides. Natural pesticides are obtained from various plants as well as other natural sources. Neem cake is obtained from neem oil, which is extracted from the seeds of the neem tree. The seeds contain compounds such as azadirachtin and nimbin that have insecticidal properties and can help control many pests in your garden or backyard.
Neem cake is made up of nitrogen (N), potassium (K), calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide, among other minerals and nutrients that are beneficial to plants when used in small amounts. It also contains sulfur which helps prevent some diseases in plants like powdery mildew on cucumbers or verticillium wilt on tomatoes
- To prepare garlic spray, you will need to mix 2 cups of water and 3-5 cloves of minced garlic in a blender.
- Garlic is effective as a pesticide because it contains sulfur compounds that are toxic to insects, but not to humans or animals. These sulfur compounds also help repel pests from plants. In addition, its antibacterial properties help prevent infections from occurring on the fruit plant itself.
- Garlic spray can be used to treat several diseases including powdery mildew and rust spots on tomatoes and apples respectively!
Compost tea is an organic solution in which compost (organic matter) is steeped in water for a period of time. This liquid can then be sprayed on plants to provide them with nutrients, or it can be used as a drenching agent. Compost teas have been found to be effective against many plant diseases, including powdery mildew, gray mold and downy mildew. It may also help repel pests such as aphids and spider mites.
Fermented plant juice
If you are looking for an all-natural pesticide, fermented plant juice is the way to go. Fermented plant juice is made by mashing plants such as cilantro and garlic with water in a blender, then leaving the mixture to ferment for several days or weeks. The resulting liquid can be diluted with water and sprayed onto plants as a foliar spray to control pests and diseases on fruit plants.
This method of pest control is particularly useful during the warmer months of summer when it’s too hot to apply any other type of pest control.
Fruit plants can be protected by using natural pesticides without affecting human health.
Pesticides are used to protect fruit plants and vegetables. They keep the plants safe from insects, weeds and other parasites. Natural pesticides can be used on all types of fruit plants without affecting human health. Natural pesticides are not harmful to the environment because they have low toxicity levels compared to synthetic chemicals. They are easy to make at home with common household ingredients that can be found in your pantry or refrigerator (e.g., vinegar, lemon juice). You don’t require any special equipment for making natural pesticides like you would when using chemical pesticides (e.g., sprayer, funnel). Furthermore, natural pesticides do not require a lot of time or money compared with chemical ones which often require professional help for application methods and safety precautions
