Non-Pesticide Methods for Small Pests

As increasing numbers of pesticides are being withdrawn, cultural techniques from the past are becoming even more relevant. Hand picking out large pests such as snails and lily beetles may be the simplest way to get rid of them. However for smaller pests such as earwigs, female winter moths, and similar species can be trapped. Barrier methods such as netting and fleece can prevent damage also from birds and flying insects. Maintaining good plant health and garden hygiene is also very important.
