Natural Insecticides Are A Better Alternative

by Steve K

When you hear everyone talking about organic this is when foods are grown with out chemicals like pesticides or any type of insecticides. You can learn to protect your garden from destructive insects and maintain healthy soil and healthy plants without the use of chemical insecticides and fertilizers. Organic fruit and vegetables are grown free of pesticides, insecticides and fungicides, sure they may not taste any better than the supermarket variety, but more importantly they do not contain pesticide residues.

During their lifetime in the soil, plants are heavily sprayed with a number of insecticides, pesticides and fungicides. Most of these pesticides are hormone disrupters, neurotoxins; some may be carcinogenic, while others may cause genetic mutations. There are five basic types of treatment for pests: chemical insecticides, biological insecticides, botanical insecticides, insecticide soaps and predatory insects (remember- some are your friend!). Biological pest control includes insecticides that are derived from plants or other naturally occurring substances such as microorganisms.

However, if you live in an area where lawns are watered with municipal water (chlorinated) or are treated with inorganic fertilizers, or sprayed with pesticides and insecticides it is not a good idea to let your dogs eat the grass. They will often lick their pads to stop the burning, which can lead to diarrhea. Pesticides or insecticides are similar to cleaning agents in that when dogs lick their pads, they will ingest some of the chemicals. Applying the proper care to your lawn can ensure that everything around it is protected against harmful pesticides and insecticides, as well as adding appeal and value to your home.

Using chemical insecticides, even using organic insecticides can kill the destructive insects but will also kill the beneficial insects. And so the endless cycle goes on where you treat for pests which die and upset the balance because the good insects are killed as well. These insects in enough quantity would eat the pest and provide a natural pest control for your garden. Knowing which natural insecticides to use will allow your garden to operate more effectively against these unwelcome intruders.

The best option is to use homemade natural insecticides due to their friendlier impact on the environment and their low cost. Homemade natural insecticides can be produced with less cost and in as much quantity as the homeowner requires, can be acquired with little fuss and gives the peace of mind that you are not in any danger from toxic poisoning.

You can make homemade natural insecticides that are extremely effective, in unlimited quantities that will not cost a lot of cash. To find out how, go to Natural Insecticides.

The Secret of Colloidal Humus Compost

by Rod Turner (author of The World's Best Compost)

To my total amazement I found out that almost ALL plants grown by man today are being force fed into sickness and us along with them.

And that as it turns out is why we have all the plant and pest problems we do. These plants are sick and surprise surprise, old mother Nature wants to be rid of them!

How many root systems does a plant have?

Now imagine how you would feel to have a garden that was healthy and glowing with life. Where the plants hardly ever got any pest problems. Where the food you harvested fresh tasted better than almost any food you ever tasted before? (the worlds best chefs seek out food grown this way because it makes them famous!) Madonna's personal chef had it flown in wherever they were on tour.

Can you pick up a handful of your soil and breathe in the rich sweet aroma? Or does it smell a little unpleasant, like fertilizer or probably not at all? Sick soil equals sick plants.

Would you love it when your plants just leap out of the soil with the vitality of an Olympic athlete in peak competition readiness?

What about having soil so friable and structured that you can dig it with your bare hands? Would you love that too?

Well all these wonderful garden of Eden like qualities you can have from understanding that the plant has TWO root systems if given the chance in a natural growing environment.

One for feeding when the Sun shines and one for drinking almost pure soil water 24/7.

For healthy pest free, fantastic tasting plants, you must NOT feed plants through the soil water as 99.99% of our "experts" tell us. (this mentality supports the huge fertilizer and chemical giants wreaking havoc on our planet)

Plants must be fed naturally through humus of the plants free choice in the soil.
