OUR "HIRED" BUGS

OUR "HIRED" BUGS

Hired Bugs are totally safe. Effective. And natural.
   Hired Bugs are not only totally safe for you and your plants, they're also safe for the environment. And they're effective on a wide variety of crops in greenhouses, indoors under lights, as well as in home gardens and in outdoor commercial field applications.

Hired Bugs never become pests themselves.
   The Hired Bugs we sell only eat other pests. They do not harm plants, people, or pets in any way. When pest populations are eliminated, your Hired Bugs will either die off or move on to find more pests to eat somewhere else.

Nothing could be easier to use than Hired Bugs!
   They're easier to apply and need far less re-application than sprays or dusts. And you simply can't overdose your plants! You'll soon be delighted with the results and you'll see for yourself: Nature's Control is real control!

Say goodbye to applying and re-applying sprays & dusts.
Hired Bugs do the job easier, safer, better!

Using Hired Bugs


   Beneficial insects have controlled insect pests for millions of years and now, with Hired Bugs from Nature's Control, you can use them in your garden, too!

   Totally safe for humans and their plants, Hired Bugs are also safe for the environment. And they're proven effective - we have many satisfied users growing in home greenhouses, and indoors under lights, as well as in commercial farming applications, on a variety of crops.

   The pests gradually disappear, and the beneficial insects thrive. When the Hired Bugs start running out of food, you can even move a few 'buggy' leaves to other plants that need help, and the Hired Bugs will crawl off to begin controlling pests on the new plants.

   You never need to worry about our Hired Bugs becoming pests themselves, because the ones we sell can only eat other pests - not plants. And when your pest populations die off, they will too - unless they find more pests to eat.

   Hired Bugs don't tolerate most pesticides very well, so it's very important not to apply residual pesticides (such as Malathion & Sevin) for at least a month before using "Hired Bugs". If you've been using pesticides click here for a chart listing recommended wait periods before applying beneficial insects. If there's any question, you might want to try some inexpensive beneficial insects first (such as Ladybugs) before moving on to more expensive, more targeted controls.

   Temperature and humidity can often be adjusted to favor the Hired Bugs over the pests, and close attention to recommendations will give better results. Often, these changes can be as simple as adjusting ventilation or watering routines.

   For example, increasing the humidity by increased watering or misting plants more often, or merely splashing water on the floor, will often help the Hired Bugs out, because pests usually get plenty of moisture from plant juices, and they often prefer drier conditions.

   The small amount of time you spend creating more favorable conditions for Hired Bugs will be well worth your while!
