    Hi,
    I am a new user, I submitted my own problem, about which I am waiting for an answer. I also read some of the posted issues, and I wonder why you do not advice
    people regarding natural pest control, beneficial insects like ladybirds or lacewings.
    The use of pesticides kills those creatures, which solved completely problems of mealybugs and aphids in my garden. I live in the UK and I found on the link below all the information and products available. You probably know other companies, which may offer the same service in Canada.


    Thanks
    Loredana

    There are dozens, if not hundreds, of replies to pest problem threads suggesting people use biological control agents. UBC Botanical Garden advocates the use of [WIKI]Integrated Pest Management[/WIKI] techniques.
