Biological Pest Control Fact Sheet

Biological Pest Control Fact Sheet

Earth Kind Gardening practices work with nature to keep insect problems at bay. A healthy garden contains beneficial (or helpful) insects and pathogens, which help battle destructive pests. Often, these "beneficials" can keep pests under control. However, when the balance of nature is upset and crops begin to suffer more damage than can be tolerated, the gardener must consider other control methods. One such method is the use of biological controls—predators, parasites, and pathogens—to hold pest populations at low levels.
