Pest control methods like fogging have a huge impact on the environment. Finding alternatives to such methods is the primary aim of eco-friendly control.
One such alternative is misting. It is similar to fogging but is a safe and eco-friendly process where the chemicals used do not cause harm to the plants or animals that surround you. This process forms a thin layer that coats the plants thus eliminating mosquitoes that feed on their sap.
For garden pest control the key is to identify your pest. This is important because using any control could eliminate insects that benefit your garden too. Many pest specific organic products are available for your usage.
Proper maintenance of your sanitation and utilities plays a very important role in pest control. Regular garbage disposal and clean floors and toilets keep pests away as they have no access to food or habitation.
