Ladies and gentlemen, you’ve heard about man vs wild, now give it up for gardener vs pest! As much as we enjoy gardening and as much delight tending to our prized plants brings us, gardening is still a lot of work and there isn’t a single gardener alive who would want the fruits of his efforts to be devoured by unruly pests that might be present in his garden. Pests have been our enemies ever since we first started farming crops and till this day, we’re still engaged in battle with them, a battle you have to partake in if you want a garden at home.
There are some insects that might visit your garden and actually be beneficial to your plants so you shouldn’t freak out about every little critter you find lurking around in your garden, that’s all part of nature. However, there are other bugs that can eat your garden up to a point that you may be left with just barren soil in the end. Some of the most common bugs that you want to keep your eyes out for include caterpillars, beetles, slugs and snails. These little guys are eating the plants you worked so hard on!
The best way to make sure that these little invaders never do any harm to your precious garden is to invest in a pesticide that prevents them from ever even hatching. Of course, if you do end up finding these bugs in your garden, you can always resort to a bug spray that will kill them without harming your plants. These sprays can seep into wooden benches, which is why having ceramic garden seats instead is a better measure when it comes to your choice of garden seating.
