Organic cultivation puts health, respect for the environment first and is therefore almost a philosophy of life. Those who cultivate in this way do not use industrial pesticides or synthetic products or GMOs, but prefer to reuse any form of organic matter in order not to alter the natural fertility of the soil, respecting the biodiversity of each type of soil and territory, and making the rotation crops so as not to deplete the soil.
In organic cultivation, plant diseases are fought with natural preparations derived from plants or animals and minerals, never with synthetic and industrial products.
So whether you have a vegetable garden or a small corner of a garden grown organically, or even just a cultivation on a balcome, the problem of insects and pests can arise, but there are natural remedies and that can be produced at home, really very effective .
There are many insects that can damage plants and fortunately there are also many natural recipes to keep them away and very simple to prepare, or commonly used products to find.
For example, garlic, readily available in all homes, is a natural and powerful repellent: its smell keeps all insects away. Just blend a few cloves of garlic and then leave it to macerate in 3 liters of water for a day; then everything must be vaporized with a spray on the leaves of the plants.
Another product that is easy to find are egg shells which have a double use both as a fertilizer and as a repellent: if you chop them, you can sprinkle the soil around your plants to give them greater nourishment and instead if you create a barrier around with the shells in pieces you will remove caterpillars and snails.
Another ally is the nettle which must be collected, with gloves, then macerated in plenty of water and left to rest for a week. It is an excellent liquid fertilizer to sprinkle on the ground all around your plants.
