This is a template of sorts...

Barriers[edit]

Barriers prevent the pest from reaching the plant.

Repellents[edit]

Repellents are chemicals (or plants containing those chemicals) that make the pest avoid the plant.

Physical removal[edit]

Physical removal means removing the pests by hand, crushing them, blasting them with water, vacuuming them up, etc.

Trap crops[edit]

Trap crops are plants that the pest prefers over the plants you are trying to protect.

Poisons[edit]

Poisons are chemicals that kill the pest. Most poisons are specific.

Microbials[edit]

Predators[edit]
