I am trying to avoid pesticides but when I dont use them, the produce looks bad because the bugs and birds eat at them.
For my blueberries i cover them with horticultural fleese, the black birds like the plums, but i can't do much about them, but the wasps I've got a waspinator. It looks like a wasp nest and you hang it up in the garden, before spring, the wasps thinks there's already wasps nesting so they go away.Some people buy nets, some build cages..
Actually, I've just remembered, the dilute aspirin solution I use on my nightshades IS systemicI accept a certain amount of loss, but net, use organic slug pellets, nematodes lime and woodash to keep slugs and snails at bay, spray with garlic/chilli water.
I DON'T use anything systemic; if a slug won't touch my cabbage, neither will I.
