1 - Beneficial insects: all-natural control. This means adding and managing populations of beneficial insects (lady bugs, aphidius wasps or others) to help eat up any hap-hazardous things destroying your plants. Lady bugs aren't just all-natural...they are also cheap!
• Aphid Midge: these tiny creatures feed on over 60 types of aphids that are harmful to plants.
• Braconid Wasps: adult females inject their eggs into hosts where they feed and grow inside, these includes bugs such as moths, beetles and aphids.
• Damsel Bugs: aphids, small caterpillars, leafhoppers, thrips and other small pecks are the target of the Damsels.
• Lacewings: they feed on aphids, caterpillars, mealybugs, scales, thrips and whiteflies.
• Lady Beetles: Mites, aphids and mealybugs are the target for these insects.
• Minute Pirate Bugs: they are fast little bugs that will attack almost any other insect.
• Soldier Beetles: these insects feed on both harmless and damaging pests including; caterpillars, aphids and other insects.
• Tachinid Flies: larvae burrow into many caterpillars that help eliminate their population.
2 - Environmental bio sprays: when dealing with stubborn bugs it is possible to do so with out harmful chemicals. For example, garlic, pepper or onion sprays, worm casting tea, fungi spore sprays, and essential oil extracts like orange.
3 - Soap Sprays: when used moderately, diluted soaps are the least toxic "non-organic" way to attack plant problems. Large quantities of soap is extremely dangerous to fish so keep that in mind. Again - there are plenty of more natural ways to handle issues.
4 - Neem Oil Spray: small infestations can be handled by this on-the-spot solution. Neem oil is multi-purpose and can be used on a variety of plants, however, it can be harmful to some types of bees and it isn't necessary the safest product for fish. That is why use in moderation and spot work is the best protocol.
5 - AzaMax: containing Azadirachtin A and B (like that means anything) and several food grade ingredients (health consensus) there are no hard chemicals involved. It disrupts food and growth patterns of unwanted insects.
