Try using preventative measures whenever you can. Fencing, aviary mesh, planter boxes, and containers can all help to keep your plants healthy.

Don’t forget that healthy plants defend themselves from preditors best. Keep everything well watered. Use good compost as a side dressing at least every other month. And keep some organic sprays or soaps on hand if you need to.

Don't let them outnumber you!

Whenever you can, pick off pests by hand. Keep animals out if possible. Use a spray if you must, and be tenacious!
