We have some spearmint and peppermint plants for teas etc - they appear
to be getting eaten by bugs. Any suggestions on organic/safe
pesticides/treatments we can try to keep them safe? We like to pick them
off the plant and eat at a moments notice. (Avoiding, of course, the
spots the dogs pee on) :-)
it is best to identify the bugs in question
before anything else.
one of the basic ideas behind organic
methods is trying to understand the whole
system so that it can be adjusted in the
easiest way possible.
it might be the case that the bugs you
are trying to control can be managed by
planting other plants to attract the
bug predators or to improve the area in
some other manner to make the bugs less
likely to have population booms.
