Where do pests come from?

We regularly wonder where our pests come from. Did you know that pests can survive up to a year in a plant without us being able to observe them with the naked eye in our plants?

We are often suggested to be careful when going out to the nursery, or when buying fruits and vegetables, but ultimately do you know that this still remains rare as a means of bringing pests at home?

Adopting new plants that can harbor pests is actually quite common and remains the most likely source of infestation.

Effectively the pests which sometimes are not in the best conditions to propagate in a plant which is their host, then only survive at the stage of egg larvae with little of adult individuals visible to the naked eye.

The new plant that we may have isolated in quarantine will not escape this rule, even if we recommend this practice and it protects your plants from visible infestations, it does not. does not eliminate the possibility of having pests in your home.

Pests do not all reproduce at the same speed depending on the type of plant and the type of individual. It's a bit like humans in the end, they have their favorite meal.

However, if you place your new infested plant (even after a quarantine period) and they like the plant next to it, the more they could multiply at high speed if it is more welcoming.

It's then that we ask ourselves, how come my plant is infested and where does it come from?

At adopt a plant, protecting your plants is just as important as having a healthy plant.

We know very well that fighting an infestation is part of the journey of our plants and we know to what extent this generates stress.

Fighting an infestation always remains a tedious step and does not always bear fruit despite the involvement, the time spent and the methods to combat them.

It is in partnership with Lady Bug that our journey towards phytoprotection takes on even more scope and meaning.

We had long used predators for prevention.

But it was with Camillle, the owner of Lady Bug that we understood that there are good ways to use predators and above all many bad ones.

This is why we have unraveled received ideas and reality with the help of Camille in order to offer you support to help you step by step in the fight and prevention pests.

To finish, we bring up this question which will soon present a new blog article topic: how to use predators on a daily basis in order to prevent the arrival of infestations and predators ?

Because adopting is plantastic, but with healthy plants it's even better!
