Tips for fumigating your garden


Tips for fumigating your garden
Today we want to give you some simple tips to fumigate in your gardens and orchards. There are some guidelines that will help us achieve success in our treatment of a plague. As a result of the experience that gives us the direct deal with our clients, in our point of sale, we know the most common errors that are committed in the applications of phytosanitary and ecological products.

Here are some guidelines and tips for fumigating:

Use the right product for your pest. We advise you to advise yourself before applying a phytosanitary product. For the product to work it is essential to correctly identify the pest in the garden or garden crop.
Use a mixture made at the moment. Do not store products already mixed with water because they lose their effectiveness. Calculate well the phytosanitary product that you are going to use and adjust the necessary mixture for the treatment.

Make the mixture at the time of spraying

Do not fumigate the plants in full sun. If you apply phytosanitary products with a strong sun, it can damage the crop or the treated plants. The best time to spray is early in the morning or late in the afternoon when the sun is softer.

Do not use phytosanitary products that are open more than two years. These products lose their effectiveness.
Apply the products with a suitable sprayer. This will make the application of phytosanitary products easier, faster and more convenient.
It is not always necessary to fumigate the plants. We advise you not to use a phytosanitary treatment when you see an insect in your plants, do it when these insects are damaging the plants or are a pest.
Alternate active matter. It is very important not to always use the same phytosanitary product. Some percent of the treated insects create resistance to the products and become immune to the following applications with the same product. Read the label in search of the composition of the product and take it into account when purchasing another product.
Thoroughly clean the sprayers used. After the fumigation, we recommend cleaning the backpacks or sprays with natural soap. Rinse, lather and rinse again with water.
Correct the pH of the water. With a correct pH insecticides, acaricides or fungicides last much longer in plants and are much more effective. For this, we recommend PH COLOR.
You could add a mojante or a foliar fertilizer to fortify the plant. With the mojante, you will obtain that the applied product is more persistent in the treated plants and with the foliar fertilizer you will get more resistant plants before the plagues.

Example of fortifying fertilizer

Do not use the same backpack or fumigation machine for herbicides and phytosanitary products (insecticides, acaricides, fungicides or foliar fertilizers). If the backpack or machine in which we have used herbicides is not washed, the subsequent treatment with sanitary products can harm the crop or plant that we want to treat.
Repeat the spray. After 5 or 7 days it is advisable to repeat the treatment.
Wet the underside of the leaves well. Many insects and mites are hidden behind the leaves and, therefore, we recommend that you pulverize these areas very well.
