Longest Running Technique Of Killing Bugs

Bookmark This Article to Delicious

It has long been a practice to immediately kill pests once an outbreak is in sight. This, however, did not give us the expected results. If it has been, we should have stopped a long time ago trying to exterminate them year after year. Remedy normally is stuck on just the exposed problems, but the actual problem which is the more obscure farming system imbalance is left unattended.

Vermin are less effectively controlled using poison. It is only a way to postpone dealing with the actual cause for the infestation. Four decades of failure should tell us it is not working. The more a farmer sprays poison, the more he will have to spray. Grasslands with confused ecology become excessively needy of pesticides because they also lose its supposedly natural pest control properties.

What made farmers stick with this expensive method of pest control by means of pesticides when there had been information circulating about biological control for years? The answer is simple. Farmers got fed up with the rate pests are destroying their crops some forty years ago. They grabbed the newest available bug killers.

We now need to be more serious in considering the spray intervals, timing and the combination. Miss one application and you got yourself a major disaster. Even an experienced farmer gets too fickle when it comes to pest restraint issues because the big trouble a small mistake could bring. Here comes the pest control specialist, freely sent by the pesticide supplier. Integrated pest management or IPM which we see almost in every farm introduced us to a revolutionary pesticide management.

An entire age group has grown up without changing their notion that all farmers do are spray, disk and irrigate. An abrupt change in the routine he has gotten so familiar with will take a lot of adjustment for the farmer. The required faith coming from the agriculturist poses as a part of the problem with changing to organic farming methods.

Trusting in something we can't see may be fine for church but will it work in our field? A 500 gallon spray rig full of poison appears to be the superior weapon against pests when compared to hard to see predators that may or may not be out there. The help pesticides actually offer is not that much.

After a hundred of pesticides invented since 1940, it is easy to believe that the number of fruits damaged by pests would have lessened over the years. However, the USDA approximates that American farmers are now being deprived of twelve to fifteen percent of their fruits because of the pests every year. Before the advent of all the new chemicals, we only have half the trouble.

Not only do we restore the soil and thus produce better fruits, we also save money, water and the air. Spritz as small as allowable in order to allow beneficial insects to live as well as to let cover crops live, and use manure and organic wastes occasionally. Although it is not a great task, it may be easier than you expect.
