This is especially important for anyone who wants to use less chemicals in their everyday life and garden.
Whether you're struggling with insects, weeds, or wildlife, there is a guide for you below that might make your gardening experience just a little easier.

Getting Rid of Garden Insects
There are a variety of insect pests that can invade your garden and put your outdoor gardening at risk. However, many other gardeners experience these issues as well, so there are a plethora of resources to help you prevent any damage to your garden from insects. Not only do many counties across the United States implement mass spraying of chemicals to kill insect pests from gardens and farms, but there are numerous brands that sell a variety of products to remove pests from your garden.
If you are interested in creating your own DIY pest repellents (with less chemicals and/or using household products that you already have in your home), then check out the insect and bug repellants below! While a general insect repellent for your garden will do a great deal of good, it is often necessary to use a repellent specific to a certain pest; both types of repellents are included in the links below!

Spraying Away Your Weeds
If you are just starting out with your gardening or have accidentally let your weeding get away from you in the past few weeks, then you might want to look into weed killers. Just as with pest repellents, there are a variety of store-bought, ready-made weed killers at any grocery, plant, or hardware store. It is very feasible to make your own weed repellents, whether you want them to be budget-friendly or to use specific household materials you already have in your home. DIYing your own weed or grass killers can help you avoid toxic materials and chemicals that will seep into the rest of your garden, while still allowing you to get rid of the weeds in your garden once and for all!
