Hello all. My name is William and I have always been a farmer. Recently, the farm next door subdivided into one-hectare blocks and a lot of urbanites moved in to enjoy the countryside. Many were excited to start their own vegetable gardens until they realised that there were some unwelcome visitors. Insects, mice and birds seemed to love their crops too! As an old hand at the game, I was able to prevent them from poisoning everything in sight! In some cases, I got them to plant flowers like marigolds to stop particular insects. In other cases I recommended calling in the experts. After all, the idea is to control the pests but keep crops healthy. I know a lot of people are faced with unexpected pests when they move. Hopefully, this blog will provide helpful advice and encourage you to assess the situation calmly. All the best.
