Garden pests are a natural event every year and they can be devastating to your garden. In July-August every year they become more noticeable and it gets worse as the season progresses. You may not notice the pest itself but you'll surely notice the damage to your plants. It could be discoloration on the leaves or stem, perhaps leaves that have been chewed, maybe even the fruit or vegetable itself that's been chewed. Most often the culprit is eating to either reach maturity or to reproduce. But don't reach for those chemicals yet! There are other ways to control most common garden pests.
