FOLK REMEDIES FOR THE MOST COMMON GARDEN PESTS
When the summer season is in full swing, vegetables grow, fruits ripen, but it’s not always possible to enjoy them. A lot of ground and flying pests prey on our crops. And now who is ahead of whom? I'll tell you how I save my plantings.
In our region, seedlings are spoiled double tails, in other regions they are called earwigs. They love to eat cucumbers and tomatoes.
I fight them with water. After abundant watering of the tomato bush, I wait to see if the two-tailed plants will appear.
They usually begin to crawl out of their burrows after their home is filled with water. This is where I'm on guard. I catch them and destroy them.
You just need to wear a glove, otherwise these monsters might inadvertently bite. The bite site swells and itches.
At the height of summer they appear in the greenhouse on cucumbers spider mites.
If the leaves begin to turn yellow, then the mites are already here. But the fight against them must begin from the moment the seedlings are planted.
Every 7 days I spray the plants with one of the solutions, I try to alternate them. Here is one of them: in a 5-liter bucket of water, dilute 0,5 liters of milk or whey, add 15 drops of iodine, 1 tbsp. a spoonful of liquid soap. The spray solution is ready. Garlic infusion helps a lot.
I pour 2 liters of water into 200 g of chopped garlic (I usually take the cores that are left after planting spring garlic), leave for a day and water the plants. You can also prepare an onion infusion: pour 50 g of onion peel into 1 liter of water, leave until it cools, then strain and thoroughly spray the plant leaves, especially on the underside.
Annoying in the summer and onion fly. I save the bow from it in the following way. Before planting, I soak the bulbs in a salt solution (1 tablespoon per 1 liter of water), without rinsing, plant the onions in furrows sprinkled with ash. During the period of bulb growth, I sprinkle the beds with wood ash, and after watering, lay out cotton pads soaked in tar.
For a smell that disorients flies, I water the beds with water infused with carrot seeds. Fortunately, I have a lot of seeds; I grow them myself. You can also use old stocks that remain after planting carrots.
When preserving onions and other garden crops, I try to do without the use of chemicals.
So that it doesn't happen wireworm on potatoes, when planting in holes, add mustard cake - 1 tbsp. spoon into each. Recently I started using tree needles. After harvesting the potatoes, I sow mustard on the vacant plot.
I wrote about the fight against the main pests that encroach on my garden plantings. Saving the harvest is not an easy task for summer residents and gardeners, but we still often emerge victorious in this struggle.
