What is Biological Control?
Biological pest control is all about introducing natural predators and parasites to control garden pests. In a natural ecosystem nearly every creature is food for something else and biological pest control is the act of boosting the population of a pestís naturally occurring predators.
At Ladybird Plantcare we believe that the long
term goal should be to understand and work
with our natural environment rather than
introducing chemical pesticides and poisons
which may have unintended consequences.
Keeping plant pests under control in a planetfriendly
way is no easy feat and because it is
such a delicate balance sometimes it can take
a little while for the introduction of new controls
to take hold. However with threats to the native
bird and bee population so critical now there is
even more reason to work with nature rather
than against it.
