Are the plants in your garden showing signs of weakness? Do they display spots on their leafs? Do they look somewhat unhealthy?
Perhaps they are infected with parasites or pests. In this case, you must act soon or they may die or even infect the plants around them.
I - Sugar Kills!
A very easy, economical solution is to spread some sugar in plant pots and flowerbeds as well. Yes! SUGAR! Surprisingly enough, this will create a hostile environment for parasites as these microorganisms feed on sugar and increase the amount of organic matter in the soil, which will help eliminate them.
Sprinkle a little sugar in your pots and flowerbeds or, if you have a garden, apply 2 kg of sugar per 25m2 of soil.
This is a simple, environmentally-friendly solution that will keep your garden protected.
II - White Vinegar X Mealy Bugs
