Q&A: Pesticides?

Question by alliep42: Pesticides?
Does anyone know anything about pesticides? I need to ask someone who uses pesticides a few questions for a paper. Here are the questions, if you could help, that would be greatly appreciated.

Name:
A. What are the names of the pesticides you use?
What pests are they used on?
B. What is the shelf-life of the pesticides?
C. Are the pesticides biodegradable?
D. Are the pesticides harmful to humans or pets?
E. How often are the pesticides applied.

Thanks!


Best answer:

Answer by Cat
A. There are almost as many kinds as there are pests. personally, I only use a handful. Dormant oil for my fruit trees. Flea powder for my pets. Very occasionally rotenone - a plant-derived pesticide, for my squashes, because striped cucumber beetles sometimes get the best of me.

B. Depends on the pesticide. Some have pretty short shelf-lives, some keep for decades.

C. Some are biodegrable. Some aren't.

D. Some can be very toxic to humans and animals. Some are not harmful at all. It all depends on how they work. There are some that are essentially nerve toxins. pretty much bad for any animal. Others are hormones that interfere with an insects' ability to pupate. It affects a small target group of insects, but it almost harmless to other kinds of insects and animals.

E. Depends on the pesticide, and the target insect. Some need to be sprayed every 2 weeks during the growing season. Some just once or twice - and when depends on the life cycle of the target. Could be spring, could be summer, could be fall.

I try to use pest "deterents" rather than pesticides, when possible, or biological solutions. (creating gardens that include plants that attract the "good" bugs - the pests' natural predators.)
For instance: Dormant oil (to kill overwintering pests on fruit trees) is done once - in the winter. Flea spray for animals is often used once a week in warm weather.

12 + 1 Organic Vegetable Garden-ing Tips




Organic vegetable gardening is the "in thing" these days as people have realized that the use of fertilizers and pesticides do more harm than good. Yes it will make the vegetables bigger or enable the farmer to harvest them faster but the chemicals used in making this happen could be detrimental to the health of those who eat it.

But since the early farmers never did that and relied only on sunlight and irrigation, this concept is making a comeback. These will also enable you to do this at home since you have access to the three most basic things namely soil, water and sunlight.

What kind of organic vegetables can you plant? Well, just about everything. Some examples of these include broccoli, cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes and a lot more. You just have to know which of them can be planted during the different seasons of the year.

Organic vegetable gardening is challenging but it pays off when you are able to reap what you sow. This means additional savings and maybe even a small business if you want to sell whatever excess you have in the market.

It's never too early to start little ones on healthful eating habits. Ask Nina and Jeff, two energetic mini-monsters who live in a garden full of wonderfully nutritious goodies. In To The Garden, these adorable little fiends cultivate a love of fruits and vegetables through fun-filled songs, rhymes and quizzes. "What is that orange thing buried in the ground?" "What are those red balls doing up in that tree?" They plant, hoe, harvest, and picnic their way to teaching kids the importance of fresh produce for a healthy diet. To The Garden makes small appetites grow monstrous for nature's bounty.

How is plant life related to animal life? And Did animal life evolvefrom plant life?

Plant


Question by Heron By The Sea: How is plant life related to animal life? And Did animal life evolve from plant life?
Also I'd like to know things like,
Which came first, plant or animal life? (or did they come about at the same rate?)

Are organisms like bacteria more closely related to plant or animal life?

How did plant life begin?

Intuitively, we sense there is something different about plant life from animal life - but what exactly is that difference? There are plants that can move quickly, like a Venus Flytrap, and animals that act more the way we think plants would act, like a sea anemone.

Thanks for your answers!


Best answer:

Answer by polybisep
Animal life did not evolve from plant life. Both plant life and animal life evolved on parallel paths from common ancestors. That is why you see the overlap in structures that you mentioned. At one time there were only single celled life forms. At that point it would have been difficult to call them either plants or animals. From there several different lines evolved specializing in different ways which eventualy lead to all the plants and animals we know today. Some biologists have even said there are not clear distinctions between plants and animals, but that plants are really nothing but very slow moving animals.

All New Square Foot Gardening


  • ISBN13: 9781591862024
  • Condition: USED - Very Good
  • Notes: BUY WITH CONFIDENCE, Over one million books sold! 98% Positive feedback. Compare our books, prices and service to the competition. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed

Do you know what the best feature is in All New Square Foot Gardening?

Sure, there are ten new features in this all-new, updated book. Sure, it's even simpler than it was before. Of course, you don't have to worry about fertilizer or poor soil ever again because you'll be growing above the ground.

But, the best feature is that "anyone," "anywhere" can enjoy a Square Foot garden. Children, adults with limited mobility, even complete novices can achieve spectacular results.

But, let's get back to the ten improvements. You're going to love them.

1) New Location - Move your garden closer to your house by eliminating single-row gardening. Square Foot Garden needs just "twenty percent" of the space of a traditional garden.

2) New Direction - Locate your garden "on top" of existing soil. Forget about pH soil tests, double-digging (who enjoys that?), or the never-ending soil improvements.

3) New Soil - The new "Mel's Mix" is the perfect growing mix. Why, we even give you the recipe. Best of all, you can even "buy" the different types of compost needed.

4) New Depth - You only need to prepare a SFG box to a depth of 6 inches! It's true--the majority of plants develop just fine when grown at this depth.

5) No Fertilizer - The all new SFG does not need any fertilizer-ever! If you start with the perfect soil mix, then you don't need to add fertilizer.

6) New Boxes - The new method uses bottomless boxes placed aboveground. We show you how to build your own (with step-by-step photos).

7) New Aisles - The ideal gardening aisle width is about three to four feet. That makes it even easier to kneel, work, and harvest.

8)New Grids - Prominent and permanent grids added to your SFG box help you visualize the planting squares and know how to space for maximum harvest.

9)New Seed Saving Idea - The old-fashioned way advocates planting many seeds and then thinning the extras (that means pulling them up). The new method means planting a pinch- literally two or three seeds--per planting hole.

10) Tabletop Gardens - The new boxes are so much smaller and lighter (only 6 inches of soil, remember?), you can add a plywood bottom to make them portable.

Of course, that's not all. We've also included simple, easy-to-follow instructions using lots of photos and illustrations. You're going to love it!

I live in oregon.What is the best fertilizer to put on your yard this time of year?


Best answer:

Answer by tensnut90_99
It would be best to wait till Sept. and put down a 17-17-17 slow release fertilizer. You can get it at Home Depot. Wal-Mart and Lowes usually don't carry it. It would also be good to put down a top dressing of peat moss at the same time on top of the fertilizer.

Q&A: Pesticides?

Question by alliep42: Pesticides?
Does anyone know anything about pesticides? I need to ask someone who uses pesticides a few questions for a paper. Here are the questions, if you could help, that would be greatly appreciated.

Name:
A. What are the names of the pesticides you use?
What pests are they used on?
B. What is the shelf-life of the pesticides?
C. Are the pesticides biodegradable?
D. Are the pesticides harmful to humans or pets?
E. How often are the pesticides applied.

Thanks!


Best answer:

Answer by Cat
A. There are almost as many kinds as there are pests. personally, I only use a handful. Dormant oil for my fruit trees. Flea powder for my pets. Very occasionally rotenone - a plant-derived pesticide, for my squashes, because striped cucumber beetles sometimes get the best of me.

B. Depends on the pesticide. Some have pretty short shelf-lives, some keep for decades.

C. Some are biodegrable. Some aren't.

D. Some can be very toxic to humans and animals. Some are not harmful at all. It all depends on how they work. There are some that are essentially nerve toxins. pretty much bad for any animal. Others are hormones that interfere with an insects' ability to pupate. It affects a small target group of insects, but it almost harmless to other kinds of insects and animals.

E. Depends on the pesticide, and the target insect. Some need to be sprayed every 2 weeks during the growing season. Some just once or twice - and when depends on the life cycle of the target. Could be spring, could be summer, could be fall.

I try to use pest "deterents" rather than pesticides, when possible, or biological solutions. (creating gardens that include plants that attract the "good" bugs - the pests' natural predators.)
For instance: Dormant oil (to kill overwintering pests on fruit trees) is done once - in the winter. Flea spray for animals is often used once a week in warm weather.

Dictionary of Biofertilisers and Organic Fertilisers










Price: $ 50.36


12 + 1 Organic Vegetable Garden-ing Tips




Organic vegetable gardening is the "in thing" these days as people have realized that the use of fertilizers and pesticides do more harm than good. Yes it will make the vegetables bigger or enable the farmer to harvest them faster but the chemicals used in making this happen could be detrimental to the health of those who eat it.

But since the early farmers never did that and relied only on sunlight and irrigation, this concept is making a comeback. These will also enable you to do this at home since you have access to the three most basic things namely soil, water and sunlight.

What kind of organic vegetables can you plant? Well, just about everything. Some examples of these include broccoli, cabbage, carrots, onions, potatoes and a lot more. You just have to know which of them can be planted during the different seasons of the year.

Organic vegetable gardening is challenging but it pays off when you are able to reap what you sow. This means additional savings and maybe even a small business if you want to sell whatever excess you have in the market.

To The Garden






It's never too early to start little ones on healthful eating habits. Ask Nina and Jeff, two energetic mini-monsters who live in a garden full of wonderfully nutritious goodies. In To The Garden, these adorable little fiends cultivate a love of fruits and vegetables through fun-filled songs, rhymes and quizzes. "What is that orange thing buried in the ground?" "What are those red balls doing up in that tree?" They plant, hoe, harvest, and picnic their way to teaching kids the importance of fresh produce for a healthy diet. To The Garden makes small appetites grow monstrous for nature's bounty.
