Save Your Garden: Top Natural Remedies for Pest Management

Taking care of your gardens is not a piece of cake, and that is why nothing hurts more when it gets infested with pests. Pests can completely ruin your garden by destroying your plants and flowers. This problem is not something that can go away on its own and needs some serious attention.


If you have pets in your house, garden pests can bug them as well. There are certain products available on the market that you can use. For example, you can get a flea product for cats, so your pet cats stay safe from any allergies or fleas.

The best kinds of remedies are the natural ones as they don’t cost much and are pretty effective. If you are currently fed up with the pests invading your garden, look below at four natural remedies that you should try.

Lime Sulfur and Horticultural Oil


Spray lime sulfur and horticultural oil on the trunk and branches of your fruit trees. This mixture will suffocate the insect eggs. If you find the oily spray heavier, use a pump sprayer. However, be sure that you use this solution when the tree is dormant. Otherwise, it can potentially kill the tree.

Milky Spore


Garden grubs can eat the roots of the grass and plants. There is a natural remedy for these grubs and is called milky spore. Spread the granules of milky spore on the soil. They cause a certain disease in the grubs that kills them.

The good thing about this remedy is that it affects the grubs only and leaves the good organisms untouched. Once you treat your garden with milky spore, the treatment can last for up to 40 years.

Garlic-Mint Insect Spray


Garlic not only helps you fight any infections, but it is also a great remedy when it comes to getting rid of garden insects. Make a Garlic-Mint spray, which is the ultimate solution to all of your pest problems.

Blend some mint leaves and garlic cloves together and add cayenne pepper. Adding some dishwashing liquid will also do the trick and soap is an excellent bug repellent. Boil the entire solution and let it cool down.

Put this liquid solution into a spray bottle and spray it on your greens to make them grow strong and pest free.

Banana Peel


If there are aphids in your garden, the solution is simple. Take a chopped banana peel and place it around the stems of your plants, under the soil line. It keeps away the critters and provides some nutrients to the soil.

For aphids-repellent, place a foil around the base of your plant. When the sunlight reflects off of the foil, it will shine on the underside of the leaves, which will get rid of the aphids. Don’t give too much light to your plants or they will be scorched.
