Organic recipes for pest control start with Mother Nature.

What are the best organic recipes for pest control?

Neem oil is effective in killing insects, as are recipes using garlic and pepper. But what works the best? Plant nutrition.

It is a proven fact that sapping insects are programmed to attack plants that are either sick or nutritionally deficient. The scientists at Tainio Technologies did a test on a potato field that was nutritionally out of balance. First, they applied a foliar application to the potato plants on half of the field to supply the nutritional deficiencies. Next, they released 2,000 potato bugs on each half of the field. In the portion of the field that was still nutritionally deficient, the potato bugs had a feast. But on the other half of the field, they just walked away. They didn’t even see the potato plants as food.

But why?

Plants emit infrared rays that differ according to their nutritional makeup. When the Cation nutrients (calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium) and micro-nutrients are in correct balance, plants emit infrared rays at a frequency of 660 and have a pH in the sap of 6.4. But where these nutrients are missing or are out of balance, the plant will substitute hydrogen in their place. When a plant is forced to substitute hydrogen to the point that it emits infrared color at 720 or higher on a nanometer, it communicates to sapping insects to help themselves.

So what are the best organic recipes for pest control? They are the recipes that supply the plant with needed nutrients. Perhaps this can explain why concentrated sea minerals have such a strong track record for preventing insects from attacking plants. Concentrated Sea Minerals are fortified with Potassium, Magnesium, and Sodium, plus contains the complete spectrum of micronutrients needed by plants.

Case in point: Joe McBride applied concentrated sea minerals on his large garden, and for the whole year he saw only one insect pest, a caterpillar, on the edge of his garden. Look closely at the Collard leaves – there is absolutely NO insect damage. Reports like this are coming in from all across the nation. Sea minerals offer a wonderful way to fortify a plant with nutrients, and are one of the best organic recipes for pest control that there is.

Are there any other reasons why the best organic recipes for pest control are nutritional? Yes. Did you know that there are far more beneficial insects per acre than harmful ones. In fact, less than 2% of all insects are harmful. Organic bug sprays for plants kill any bug they come into contact with, whether a pest bug or a beneficial bug. It is far better to approach insect control using an organic recipe for insect control that centers on plant nutrition than to use organic recipes for pest control that do great damage to beneficial insects. For instance, if you kill the pollinators, what do you think will pollinate your plants?

With these things in mind, here are some recommendations:

  • Get rid of weak plants. They will attract sapping insects.
  • Build up your soil. Compost, use mulch, apply natural fertilizers and Humic Acids. Strong vigorous plants come from healthy soils.
  • Clear out weeds and other debris that might be a breeding place for insects.
  • Apply calcium carbonate for low pH soils, or calcium sulfate for high pH soils.
  • Foliar feed your plants with concentrated sea minerals.
