Controlling Garden Pests.
  • When you see 2 Harlequin Beatles cosying up like this it means trouble. I try to catch them in early spring before they can take a hold.
  • I have a number of weapons in my pest mitigation armoury including exclusion (netting and copper tape), biological ( Bacillus Thuringiensis) and asphyxiation (Horticultural oil), but if you can get your garden in balance with nature, it will do the job for you.
  • The links below take you to my database describing most of the pests visiting my garden.  Each pest has a dedicated page which includes their name and a description.  It also explains why the pest is regarded as a pest, together with a list of appropriate control measures which can be utilised.
  • Links in alphabetic order.
