Whiteflies and Other Garden Pests
As Magical as Waving a Wand!
The Bug Blaster,
throughout the world have fought off pesky
pests for centuries in order to grow beautiful
flowering plants and lush vegetables. Chemical
sprays helped rid gardens of the critters
for a while. Even organic brews have been
concocted to vanquish the vermin.
According to Sunset Western Garden
Book , aphids damage a wide variety
of plants by piercing the leaves and stems,
then sucking out plant juices. Some aphids
also transmit viral diseases. Mealy bugs
and whiteflies attack both indoor and outdoor
plants, and are troublesome in warm-winter
areas. They suck plant juices, causing stunting
and, in some cases, kill the plant. Of the
many kinds of mites, some are host specific,
such as clover and citrus bud mites. Others,
namely spider mites, attack a variety of
outdoor and indoor plants (especially roses)
by sucking plant juices.
Additionally, a recent study by the Agricultural
Experiment Station at the University of
California, Riverside, CA, studied
side-by-side comparisons with several pesticides
indicated that the use of a strong stream
of water directed to the undersides of infested
leaves (syringing) "...performed as well
or better than chemical treatments." The
study recommends syringing at least once
a week with high whitefly population, then
once every two or three weeks as populations
decrease. Sunset Western Garden Book
also recommends hitting both sides of leaves
of infested plants.
Syringing solves the #1 problem of whiteflies
for Southern California gardeners. Syringing
annihilates the sticky white flys residue
from the underside of the leaves and blasts
the whiteflies from mid-air as they try
to escape. "After only one application,
the syringing devastates the whitefly's
life cycle from egg to moth," explains O'Donnell,
a licensed landscape contractor. "With only
a few additional treatments, plants regain
complete health. Syringing is probably the
easiest, most environmentally sound method
of eradicating the creatures of the world
who feast on our luscious vegetation."
Using a concentrated wall of water covers
areas of the vegetation where even the best
chemicals can not reach, blasting pests
from the underside and tops of leaves while
cleaning sooty mold and dirt from all angles.
Syringing also works equally well for rejuvenating
and cleaning both indoor and outdoor plants.
Syringing systematically eliminates the
constant threat of pests on your ornamentals,
vegetable gardens and fruit trees. Using
it will keep your reputation for having
a green thumb intact.
No one has found an easier way to wipe out
those devilish demons than Southern California
master gardener Patrick O'Donnell, who invented
the mighty Bug Blaster for that purpose.
I have used it myself under many different
and unusual conditions, and it manages bug
infestations better than any other product
I've found on the market. After experimenting
with the size, shape and configuration of
the nozzle sprayer, I found this final version
to be the most effective."
It's so easy; even a small child can use
it! In fact, the Bug Blaster wand sprayer
is simply attached to the common garden
hose with an unusually designed nozzle that
creates a 360-degree wall of water. Imagine
cleansing your green treasures with H2O.
Novel as it is, this garden sprayer effectively
controls aphids, whiteflies, mealy bugs
and spider mites for gardeners.
Here's how it works: Aim the spray from
the Bug Blaster in a vertical direction
using a sweeping motion as you work the
nozzle in and out of the shrub, and concentrating
the spray on the infected portion of the
plant. Control the water flow with the easy-to-use
valve at the base of the handle. Spray plants
from the top and then from the bottom. For
delicate plants, you merely restrict the
flow; for hardy plants or heavy infestation,
just blast away! It's as easy as waving
a magic wand!
The Bug Blaster, www.thebugblaster.com
, is 100% environmentally safe and provides
the most effective non-toxic control of
garden pests. For those who elect not to
use pesticides because they present a potential
risk to children, pets and even to the plants
they are supposedly protecting, the Bug
Blaster offers gardeners an inexpensive,
user friendly option. Additionally, the
Bug Blaster saves time - no more measuring,
mixing or rinsing toxic chemicals.
The patent pending Bug Blaster is 70 percent
successful on adult whiteflies and up to
100 percent on infant pests or larval stages.
It also dislodges most eggs. After one application,
the device eliminates colony take over.
