Your Brain Is the Most Powerful Pesticide

20170822A.jpgWhen the word “pesticide” comes up, you immediately think of the kind of pesticide you spray, but in fact the best pesticide is between your two ears. You’re a human being, after all, the so-called pinnacle of evolution on this planet, with a brain so powerful that your species has actually managed to project itself into space and leave the Earth.

I therefore challenge you to learn how to control the enemies of your plants without using any chemical pesticide at all or, if that fails, then the pesticide the least harmful to the environment.

Just think before you spray: it’s often that easy!

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
