Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    Grow plants that naturally repel pests. Basil is a good candidate, as its odor is unpleasant to tons of garden pests.

  • What Comes Next

    Invest in trap crops — plants that’ll draw pests’ attention away from the ones you want to protect. These decoys can do wonders for gardens.
