It’s December at the moment and back in the Netherlands, I would never have to worry about pest control at this time. But over here in Spain, my second crop is in the kitchen garden. And the grasshoppers have a field day on my plants.

What are the best ways to control garden pests without using chemicals or artificial toxins? I have listed 10 methods in this article.
