I have already told how to carry out the whole procedure control wireworm. It was really good, but took away a lot of time and effort. I needed to deal with pests at all stages of planting, care and harvest potatoes.
Despite its effectiveness, every year this struggle will not conduct. Just do not have the patience and effort. Therefore, in this article I want to tell you about a simple method that will help to destroy the predominant number of the pests. Of course, all the way from wireworm you do not get rid of, but its small presence ceases to be a serious problem. But this is what most gardeners seek lovers.
The essence of this method is to create a few simple baits that will help to lure and kill most pests. To create baits need no more than 30 seconds and the whole struggle will take about 2-3 days.
Step 1. create bait
To create the bait, we need potatoes last year, which is not suitable for planting and consumption. You can even use those roots, which once damaged wireworms.
Cut the root in half and stuck it in a small twig. She will play the role of a lighthouse, which will not allow the bait to get lost. (It will stick out from the ground and point to the location for the traps) You can use wooden skewers, which are used in cooking or cutting wire.
Step 2. Set the bait
Now we need to bury our bait (Or better still several baits) into the ground to a depth of at least 10 cm. If the trap will be located at the surface, it dries quickly and cease to be effective.
Digging the bait, do not need to stamp the ground, otherwise it will be difficult to pull out.
In order to lure it easier to find, on a stick can tie a bright cloth or paper sticker.
Step 3. dig the bait
In 2-3 days, check our trap. To do this, shovel bait to hook and gently pull out on the surface.
In one half of root crops can be up to 5-7 pests.
Step 4. which kill pests
Some gardeners take out wireworms, and from the old root make one more trap. But I recommend just burn our bait. This is much more reliable.
This simple and fast way will get rid of most pests and help keep your potatoes intact.
