Summer Insect Control/ Dave Owens- The Garden Guy

With summer approaching it's time to start considering how to handle the wave of insects that will start coming in like scorpions, ants, fleas/ticks, and using chemicals is not the effective way to handle them either as they will return and it's not safe around your home or family. One alternative to spraying chemicals is food-grade Diatomaceous Earth also called Fossil Shell Flour, It is made from Amorphous Diatomaceous Earth fresh water type. Insects cannot become immune to this product because it kills by mechanical action (Within 48 hours of contact, the insects will dry up and die). Spiders actually eat other insects so they are a benefit in the garden and so do geckos which you may see crawling on the walls of your home exterior. DE can be used to help eliminate ants, fleas/ticks but having some orange and eucalyptus leaves around will help with fleas and tickets (avoid flea and tick collars if possible) and picking up any pet waste often as it's a breeding ground for pests. Avoiding chemicals is key and keeping a solid barrier around your home with DE plus making sure any seals or cracks are filled in are just some of the options available to help get you started.
