Making the home garden organic - without the use of pesticides and chemicals.

The products currently available to the insect enthusiast to treat pests often include various chemicals. These materials do solve the problem, but are harmful to the environment over time. Exposure of household members, neighbors and pets to substances, their absorption into the fruit and spices in the garden, their long-term inefficiency and damage to water and soil are some of the phenomena that occur after frequent use of chemicals.

In recent years there has been growing interest in creating a cleaner environment for future generations. The move began with the organic growth of agricultural produce, continued with a growing demand from consumers for a toxic product and reached the garden with a desire to maintain a clean living environment. Today, the market offers various green solutions that can prevent many damage to the garden. These solutions include spraying of various plant extracts, the use of traps and various withdrawals, adjustment of crops by seasons, the use of parasites and beneficial insects, and the use of materials absorbed through roots instead of in the air.
