As organic gardening becomes more popular, more people switch from chemical-based pesticides to the organic ones to grow their plants. Unfortunately, there are still some people who hold the believe that Organic Pesticides used for their vegetable gardens aren’t as effective as the synthetic ones.
Actually, Organic Pesticides are as effective as - if not more effective - the chemical pesticides. A counter argument of this statement is that Organic Pesticides can’t kill bugs in the garden. That very argument is actually the main reason why it’s recommended to always use Organic Pesticides for vegetable gardens.
It’s important to have more Biodiversity in a garden. It is good to have insects, arachnids, earthworms, and microorganisms in a garden as they help to balance the garden's environment. Applying chemical pesticides will only harm these useful creatures thus also harm the biodiversity.
If you still have concern about insects living in your garden, then think about this fact. The majority (more than 90% ) of insects living in your garden actually help your plants to grow. That is the reason why nontoxic Organic Pesticides is the better choice for your garden and plants.
Beside that, using chemical-based pesticides also will harm the plants, soil, plant and humans. The effect may cannot be recognized immediately, but for the long term, the chemical pesticides will harm the environment. Remember, the pesticide can’t target specific organism so anything in contact with it will get sick and die.
The more we talk about synthetic pesticides, the more we understand why it’s inferior compared to the superior nontoxic Organic Pesticides. Beside harming the soil, it’s also bringing unwanted effects to the plants such as disturbing their growth or even killing them. Even if the plants are not killed, the chemicals will affect the taste and quality and of the crops.
Another interesting aspect about Organic Pesticide is that it can be made at home using waste materials, so it will save some money..
Here are some easy recipes to make goo quality Organic Pesticides. The first recipe is by using one garlic bulb and one gallon of water. Mix them together then spray the solution all over the leaves and soil. Next recipe is by using dishwashing liquid, baking soda and bleach. This solution is effective to deal with mildew.
It’s so cheap and easy, so why don’t you start to use Organic Pesticides for your vegetable garden. If you need for more info, you could just look on the internet or gardening magazines.
