If you have ever had an experience with a garden pest, you probably understand the importance of having a good home garden pest control system in place to protect your precious plants and flowers.
There are so many different types of garden pests out there; one that can really mess up a lot of hard work and time is the aphid.

This pesticide is generally applied to the plant leaves by hand, which can be very dangerous for children to try as they are usually in charge of getting the pesticide on their skin.
Also, you cannot always see the area to apply this pesticide as it has to penetrate your skin and through your clothes.
These are common garden pest control methods which can provide great results, but they can also be dangerous and cause damage to your family.
