How to treat your plants against bugs?

To keep our plants healthy, we use commercial grade products purchased in bulk and are not typically labeled for home-use or retail sale.

However, there are several natural remedies to keep your plants healthy. Some of these are included in the list below...

Neem oil: Neem oil is a natural product that is effective against a wide range of pests, including mites and worms. It works by disrupting the insect's hormonal balance, preventing them from reproducing and feeding. Neem oil can be applied directly to the affected areas of the tree, but it is important to follow the instructions on the label carefully.

Garlic and chili pepper spray: A solution of crushed garlic and chili peppers mixed with water can be an effective natural pesticide. Simply spray the solution onto the leaves and fruit of the tree to deter pests.

Soap and water: A solution of mild soap and water can help control pests, mites, and worms. Mix a few drops of liquid soap with water and spray it onto the affected areas of the tree.

Beneficial insects: Some insects are beneficial to fruit trees, as they feed on pests and help control their populations. Ladybugs, lacewings, and parasitic wasps are all examples of beneficial insects that can be introduced to the tree's ecosystem.

It is important to note that not all pest control methods are appropriate for all trees or pests. If your tree does not show improvement, consult with a local expert or a nursery to determine the best course of action for your specific situation. Additionally, it is important to follow all safety precautions when using any type of pesticide or natural remedy.
