Most of the pest and disease problems our customers bring to our attention are easily solved. As an example, we recommend diatomaceous earth, an organic product, as a very effective control for slugs on hostas, broccoli, cabbage, and more. We could hardly keep it on our shelves last year. To protect your vegetable garden from insect pests, Captain Jack’s Deadbug Brew is a great organic solution that’s actually derived from a compound found in soil. For people who have problems with blossom end rot on tomatoes, we have a natural calcium supplement that solves that. If powdery mildew is your problem, then Bonide’s Fungonil will solve that. If unwanted animals are munching on your favorite plants, Liquid Fence is a great deterrent against rabbits and deer.
If you have a specific pest or disease problem that needs to be addressed, don’t wait. Place a sample of the plant or insect in a sealed plastic bag and bring it in and we’ll identify your problem and provide you with a solution.
