Planting and maintaining a garden at home is a rewarding and exciting hobby. However, it does not always come without its own challenges since many animals and pests will always be as eager to enjoy your hard work as you are. This means a lot must be done to keep these insects and animals out of your garden. Doing this can be challenging since these insects and animals are very persistent. Some of the common animals include rats, moles, squirrels, rabbits and mice and common insects including moths, mites, thrips, and whiteflies. This article highlights some of the methods that you can use to keep your garden free of insects and animals in order to achieve higher yields.
Eradication by using baits. There are several poisonous baits that can be effective in eradicating some pests. Some of these baits include smoke bombs and scissor traps. Always remember to ensure that the baits you use are not dangerous to your pets at home.
Another method of repelling animals and insects in your garden is the use of scent repellants such as castor oil, garlic clips and predator urine. This can be an effective temporary solution but they need to be monitored and reapplied regularly in order for them to remain effective. The use of products with hot pepper can help deter rabbits and squirrels. Some types of plants such as castor beans can be used to reel rodents so you might consider planting them among your other plants in the garden.

You can also consider using live traps to keep these animals and insects from your garden. These traps are mostly made from steel wire mesh and have a spring controlled door that closes whenever an animal enters into the trap, therefore, locking them inside. These traps are effective in trapping squirrels, rabbits, and woodchucks. You can consider using any of these methods to repel all insects and animals from your garden.
