Safer products provide non-chemical insect control and protection for virtually all outdoor and indoor plants.  Safer Soap has been the standard insecticidal soap for many years; safe, reliable, and very effective on soft bodied insects.  Insecticidal soaps work by washing the insect’s protective cuticle away causing the insect to desiccate and die.  This type of control is very effective and organic.  Other quality Safer.products include vegetable garden spray, BT spray, and organic fungicide.  All of the Safer products are organic, safe, and effective.

Monterey Chemicals is a progressive company that blends various natural and organic oils to control and repel various insect species.  Their Neem Oil product is a very high quality Neem oil concentrate and we have had great results with their Miticide spray product.  This is a combination of several organic oils that is very effective in controlling spider mites, especially on roses and cannabis.  Remember that spider mites are not insects, but rather arachnids, so insecticides will not control them.  Therefore having a good quality miticide in your tool box is a must.


Organic Pest RepellantsBobbex We have found that Bobbex deer and rodent repellent is a product that really does what it says it will do.  Bobbex is a mix of naturally repulsive organic products that repel deer and rabbits as well as protects flower bulbs from gophers and ground squirrels.  It is effective for up to two weeks per application on surface plants and will protect treated bulbs for a full season.  It also has a slight fertilization component that will green up annuals and young vegetable plants.  Native Roots carries both the ready to use Bobbex as well as concentrate in quantities from one quart bottles to five gallon pales.

Got grasshoppers?  That is a common question during the summer months in La Plata county and the answer is usually YES!  Nolo Bait is the answer to grasshoppers.  Locally produced, Nolo BaitNolo Bait is a corn meal based product laced with a bacteria that kills only grasshoppers and will have no effect on other organisms especially other insects, pets, and humans.  The beauty of Nolo Bait is that it will persist in the environment for several months controlling grasshoppers through out the summer and even into the following spring.  We carry small containers for the homeowner and we can special order large bags for those of you with acreage.  We use Nolo Bait at our Bayfield greenhouse farm and have had terrific results. It may seem expensive but well worth every penny in the long lasting control it gives of grasshoppers.

Here’s a prSluggooduct we stumbled across several years ago to control slugs at our Bayfield greenhouse farm.  Sluggo slug bait is nothing more than pelletilized  iron phosphate fertilizer but boy does it control slugs.  Most chemical slug baits are very toxic to the environment and can be absorbed by edible vegetable plants, so we were very excited when this product first came on the market.  Slugs seem to be attracted to the pellets so Sluggo can be lightly broadcast through out the garden between irrigations. You’ll get fertilization and slug control in one step.
