The Q&A Archives: Keeping Bugs Out of Garden

Question: I have a garden and wanted to know what could I put on my plants to keep bugs off.

Answer: I wouldn't recommend trying to keep all the insects out of the garden. Many are beneficial - they help pollinate flowers and they prey on destructive insects. Wiping them out would really upset the natural balance in your garden. Instead, monitor your plants daily and handpick and squish any insects that are actually feeding on your plants, but leave the others alone so they can do their jobs. Good luck with your garden
