ENCOURAGE PREDATORS OF PESTS (ALLIES)
Predators, or allies, tend to have longer life cycles than vegetable or other plant pests, which means it takes longer for their numbers to build up. If you wage war on pests, not only do you risk killing their predators, but these natural pest controllers will never have the food they need to establish themselves. The first thing to do, then, is to identify the pests that are causing you problems. Then, do some research to find out what preys on them in your area.
