After weeks of care, having your harvest destroyed by a sudden influx of pests can be extremely disheartening.
The problem is that most pest control methods available to gardeners rely on prevention. This means knowing when the pests are likely to strike, so you can take action before it’s too late! That’s why we’re delighted to introduce The Big Bug Hunt - a new citizen science project to collect information about pest behavior with the aim of notifying you when pests are heading your way.
In this video, we offer simple tips on protecting your plants from common pests and explain how you can get involved in the Big Bug Hunt. Let’s beat the bugs together! Join the Big Bug Hunt here.
