About this Garden Plan

Examples of common pests that are problems for my successive garden are cabbage aphids, or the carrot rust fly which destroys the roots of the carrot. In the beneficial garden, i used carrots to attract braconid wasps which help kill cabbage worms. Apple trees to attract honeybees which help pollinate other plants. Watermelon to attract wasps which help kill caterpillars and aphids. Raddish to attract lady beetles which help kill other aphids. In the fruit garden, some potential pests that are found in apple trees are apple maggots, and one way you can deal with these are through beneficial nematodes which help hunt these maggots in their early pupal stage. https://www.planetnatural.com/pest-problem. The strawberries often have slugs found among them, and ways you can deal with these are by using copper barriers, or beer baits. http://www.westernfarmpress.com/slug-control.
