    You can control pest problems, and perhaps prevent future difficulties, in your garden by doing some advance planning and following a few simple Integrated Pest Management practices. IPM promotes minimal pesticide use and emphasizes the use of all available pest control methods including cultural, mechanical and biological practices to prevent pest problems.

  • Spinosad, broad spectrum bio-insecticide

    After the heat wave in mid-May, flea beetles seemed to have settled on just about everything I had growing in the garden.  
    Bok choy, potatoes, tomatoes and turnips looked as if they were shot full of tiny holes. I pick and squish and drown but that doesn’t really work with the tiny flea beetle.
