HOW TO GUIDES
ONLY AT MARCUM’S
When unwelcome critters crash your garden party you can identify they are there one of two ways. You spot the damage they cause, or you see them in action for yourselves. So how do you get rid of these pests? Let’s talk about your options.
1) Start at the foundation with healthy soil. The healthier your soil, the more nutrients your plants will have to be healthy enough to withstand insect attacks.
2) Remember that not all insects are created equally. While some insects wreak havoc on your plants, others are vital in maintaining the health of your garden. The key is to be able to spot the difference. Here is a helpful guide that outlines which insects are your friends and which ones to terminate.
3) Keep an eye on your plants. Check the underside of leaves for mold, take note of any color changes to the leaves, and keep a close eye out for any unwelcome critters. By monitoring your plants regularly you will quickly catch any intruders and rid yourself of the problem before it snowballs.
4) Once you have a pest problem and you will want to take action, luckily before you even have to think about chemical means of pest control you have other options.
