Pest control is necessary even if you are growing an organic garden. Keeping your soil well nourished produces strong plants with a nutrient ratio that is balanced. This allows these plants to defend themselves from insects and insects are less likely to flock to these plants. The more diverse this ecosystem is the less likely pest problems will arise. Use beneficial insects to keep pests in check. If you need to use pest control products use natural pesticides like soaps and oils that do not harm beneficial bugs.
Control weeds by manually removing them with the right weed-removal tools. A layer of mulch will nourish your soil and create a weed barrier.
