Natural deterrents

8 posts in this topic

just wanna share this one real quick, since I am lucky enough to have a fair size garden here with about 18 mango trees and other fruit trees, I have as well fire ants that happen to live on those trees, they apparently protect the mangos from other type of pests which is brilliant but I can't tell these are Nasty B...d!! Lol not only they may bite you but they actually run for you when you happen to be on their turf... They are mental!! They build nest with the growing leaves of the mango trees and they are everywhere!

Now unlike Africa or Australia they are only 1cm in length but that is good enough to deter you from going anywhere near them!

the brown ball leafy thing you can see is their nest...

Anyway I need to find a way to keep them away from my gardening spot, although due to weather conditions in my area and said multiple times already, I'll grow in sort of airpots, still need to find a way to keep them out of location without irradiating them as they are there for a reason.

you could use a smoker  like the honey collectors use i believe, the ants should run away from it pretty fast

i would also try to keep the ants to protect the plants from pest if you can find a way to work around them

maybe a bee suit would also do  the trick :D without the need to use smoke, one or the other hehe

I should probably recall this thread as: " my exotic pets " lol.

Here is another one of my many friends... It's called a "Toko" named after the noise is making after each insects he is eating... It shout "Toko" several time and each time slower and longer then the last one.

They are man's best friends around garden and house holds as they eat everything from Moths, bugs and bloody Mosis!!

these ones are around 30cm long and part of the Gecko family. Love them to bit!

Your pet Toko is cute. But you need to cautious as you said you also have fire ants so they may attack Toko. You can only keep them away buy consulting a pest control company. A few days ago, my aunt has hired a pest company pest inspection, Sacramento and she was feeling satisfied with their services.

HI all, 

 

It is a very interesting topic, I do not use animals that live naturally in lso gardens .... but sometimes buy natural predators (website in Spanish): http://controlbio.es/es/

There are many natural ways to protect our plants, without using toxic poison.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
