2) Use Herb Plants

One of the best green solutions to deal with those unwanted pests is to plant next to your cannabis other plants that will shoo those pests away. Most of these natural pesticide plants are ones that give off different smells and odors. They act as natural repellents. Most of these helpful plants are herb plants.

Once it cools down, simply pour it into an empty spray bottle and spray the mixture onto your plant.

4) Ever Heard of Neem Oil

Well, Neem oil is a vegetable oil pressed from the fruits and seeds of the neem (Azadirachta indica), an evergreen tree which is endemic to the Indian subcontinent and has been introduced to many other areas in the tropics. It is an effective treatment against certain pests, but there are two things that you must take into consideration. The first; it is a very short term solution, as it loses its effect when coming into contact with the sun. The second; It also has a negative effect on positive germs that live in the soil, slowing reducing the amount of nitrogen in the soil.

5) Pheromone traps

One of the main things that keep these pests going and motivated is the constant search for a mate. Similar to all animals, they thrive on breeding. Pheromone traps send out a unique hormone that attracts pests in. The horny pests come in thinking they are going to get some and that’s the end. Once they come in and land, there is no getting out.

6) Cinnamon Powder

There isn’t much to say about this one as most homes are probably familiar with this. The idea is to combine dishwashing liquid with a cup of cooking oil. For every 4 tablespoons of Kitchen guard, mix it with half a liter of water and then spray it around your base of your plants.
