The Organic Gardener’s Guide To Repelling Insects

colorado-potato-beetle-582966_640When most gardeners see insects invading their garden, they reach for a can of pesticide from the big box store.

But as you’ll learn on this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio, there are quite a few all-natural options – and some of them will keep the bugs from appearing in the first place.

This week’s guest is Fern Bradley, a gardening expert and the author of several books, including “The Organic Gardener’s Handbook of Natural Pest and Disease Control” and “Rodale’s Vegetable Garden Problem Solver.”

Fern tells us:

  • Why healthy soil is the secret weapon in organic pest control
  • How crop rotation keeps insects from appearing.
  • What to do if you have insects invading your tomatoes or squash.
  • How organic methods can keep green bean plants looking healthy all summer long.

Finally, Fern gives us advice on pest-tolerant varieties. She also shares her best tips for using diatomaceous earth in the garden.
