Growing fruit trees organically

Growing fruit trees organically is no easy task. There are hundreds of things you need to think about, both before you plant your trees, as well as during the growing season. While they are extremely difficult to grow on their own, there are many ways to make organic fruit tree management easy for you. Today we will be talking about tree protection from bugs and pests.

For many people, the idea of pest control is scary. No, I am not suggesting you put some sort of rat catcher in your tree or spray it with lethal pest control substances. I am talking about the non-lethal methods that you can use that are proven to prevent damaging pests from doing harm to your fruit tree.

These methods work to a T. They are effective, safe and easy to use. In this post I will tell you the three main pest control methods you can use to ensure that your fruit tree stays healthy and pest free.

Trees Are a Natural Form of Pest Control

Every part of the tree works together to prevent disease and pest issues. The first step in tree pest control is to understand how they are actually trying to survive. When insects and other pests find that your tree is not producing the food they need, they leave.

This is where things get tricky, because insects, spiders and other pests like to go where food is plentiful and plentiful.

Your tree uses a combination of physical barriers and chemical defenses to keep them out. A part of the tree’s body, called a trunk, is its strongest defense against pests. These trunk lines, called wood, do not only provide the food your tree needs to survive, but they also provide physical protection to the tree.

Many insects, spiders and other pests are completely unable to climb the trunks. This is where trunk wrapped methods come in. Trunk wrapped methods provide a physical barrier that stops pests from entering the trunks of your trees. Once pests become established in your tree they find the food inside the trunks. The trunk wrapped methods trap them and cause them to die.

Chemical Pest Control Methods

The next step in tree pest control is to identify the pests that attack your trees. Once you identify the pests you are likely to find your best pest control solution is already in your garden. Most of the common garden pests that plague tree species are already found in your garden and they don’t need much help to survive and thrive. The key to a successful and effective tree pest control program is to focus your efforts on preventing pests from entering your garden in the first place.

There are two main ways to stop pests from entering your garden: by preventing them from coming in from outside sources and by stopping pests once they are in your garden.

Outside Pest Control Methods

This is where you have the most control over pest issues in your garden. You must make sure that your garden is a barrier to pests so that they will not get in and survive. This may mean preventing pest plants and weeds from growing where you want them to and creating a no-pest barrier around the perimeter of your garden.

A pest-free garden is the key to successful tree pest control in the outside of your garden. Here are a few tips for keeping your garden pest-free:

Check your property every day and remove any weeds that look as though they could harbor pests.

Take all pests that you find out of your garden and dispose of them immediately.

Keep your lawn cut very short in your garden. This will keep pests from gaining access to your garden through the grass.

If you know that your garden contains pest plants or weeds that are troublesome to you, you should make sure to remove them. They may be very invasive pests that pose a threat to trees outside your home.

If you notice any pest bugs or insects in your garden you must call in a professional pest control company immediately.
