Using plants as repellants

Using plants as repellants


The fight against pests and diseases is a constant war year after year and crop after crop. Not knowing how to control it is a disaster when it comes to harvesting our harvest. It is frustrating to see how you have taken so long to grow a plant from seed that in a few days a plague will kill it. We are going to try to remedy it in an ecological way .

Ecology is the future . This phrase is hopelessly true, but nowadays it seems insufficient given the rate of population growth. Perhaps it is due to the incompatibility that may exist between an intensive cultivation with a disproportionate use of phytosanitary products, which are less and less effective, and under a constant search for new materials that in turn are capable of attacking a problem in the crop quickly, and therefore another side that is accepted by the government, given the favorable withdrawal from the market of phytosanitary productspollutants. With all this we mean that the policy that has been carried out (correct or not) is to try to overcome the critical barrier between the resistance of the pest and the crop. Believe me, in this nature has the upper hand (like an infection badly treated with an antibiotic), and there will come a time when (there are already some) breeds of pests and fungi resistant to any active matter, with more gregarious aptitudes ( the union is strength) and greater voracity.

Although we do not renounce the ethical use of medical devices, we firmly bet on the combination of these matters and ecological remedies . Therefore, we add a table where you are offered the use of aromatic plants as repellants for pests and diseases , to help you obtain an ecological harvest.


This is the big question that many people ask themselves. Let’s be honest. No. Currently only chemicals (and not all) can offer a complete guarantee of the elimination of the pest . But we do not seek to eliminate it if not to repel it. What does this mean? That if your garden is the only one in several kilometers around and the plague is there and it is hungry, no matter how many repellants you have, you will not get anything. On the other hand, if there were 2 adjoining orchards, one combined with repellent aromatic plants and the other without any type of repellent. Would you bet on which of the 2 orchards will be affected the most?Here’s the thing. Just as electricity tends to travel the most comfortable path, so does an insect have that attitude. If it is easier for it to carry out its biological cycle in a plant without anything bothering it, it will stay there and feed on it.

Well, let’s not mess around anymore, maybe you’ve just come to see what aromatic plants we’re talking about. Here they are! 😉


If you wish, share it with social networks. Let’s expand the pest and disease repellent gardens! 🙂
