Garden Pest Control Tips

Frequent Cleaning and Maintenance

Just like any other gardening tools, your greenhouse requires cleaning and maintenance as well. Be sure to give dirty spots some scrubbing so that fungus and bacteria will not have a chance of breeding.

Keep your grass short – the tall grass makes an ideal home for insects. It’s also a good idea to remove lawn debris such as fallen leaves and dead foliage since these are places where insects like to nest. Remove unwanted weeds and plants, and trim hedges and shrubs.

Apart from that, you must also schedule for an annual greenhouse cleaning (normally in the summer). For this, you need to transfer all the plants and equipments out. Clean the walls, corners, racks, secluded spots and floor using detergent and warm water so that insects, germs and bacteria will be killed.
