Pests such as insects can become very irritating in the home and garden. Some people opt to apply pesticides, chemicals that kill the unwanted visitors, but pesticides may have a negative impact on the health of plants, humans, other animals and the environment. As a result, some consumers choose to use natural pesticides derived from extracts of some plant species. Many of these natural pesticides are as effective as their chemical equivalents, and the truth is that they are much less toxic. Pesticides not pejudiciales are an important part of the organic and natural gardening. Much caution around pets and children when implementing natural pesticides should be.

While they are less toxic, many natural pesticides should not be, preferably, consumed by humans and domestic animals. It is also important to apply natural pesticides during a period of low activity of bees, as bees are very beneficial for the upkeep of the garden. The best time to apply natural pesticides is in the night, giving the plant around 12 hours to absorb the pesticide of protection, all this before out bees to do their job. The majority of natural pesticides are derived from plants. Three of the most toxic plants are pyrethrins, derived from chrysanthemums; the bromegrass, and nicotine.On the other hand of the different types of poppy strong narcotics can also occur. These derivatives can be directly applied to certain plants, such as flowers of Astromelia or others, and thus cause the death of pesky insects in a short period of time.

However, they are highly toxic to animals and humans, why the containers where these substances are deposited should be kept in a high and very well secured area. They should thoroughly wash your hands after using these natural pesticides. There are also less toxic but still effective plants to produce pesticides and derivatives. These include some oxalic acid tea, which is creates from the leaves of rhubarb and raspberries, garlic spray, mulberry tea made with the leaves of tomatoes and potatoes and neem oil. All of these substances may be applied directly to plants, and act in a different way to interrupt cycles of life of garden pests. You must be careful with the neem oil, which smells very strong. Another option are the oils of citrus fruits, which are used to deter pests. Some natural pesticides are derived from mineral ingredients. The most common example is diatomaceous earth, which are actually pulverized fossils of sea creatures called diatoms. Diatomaceous earth passes through the exoskeletons of pests, and ultimately in your body. Outdoors, it can be applied freely by the garden, provided that they do not have pets or children, and it can also be used indoors to control fleas and pests in the home, provided that the area is clean and purified, since it may irritate the lungs. It is recommended that you use protection for the nose and mouth while applying diatomaceous earth.
