1. The Practical Aquaponics discussion forum has been in operation for the last 5 years...

    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Hey guys
    What do you use to control pests in your system. I have grass hoppers and little white moths causing me trouble.
    Thanks

    Yep I would spray Dipel every other day and still couldn't control those bloody catipilers. I found by covering the beds with fine netting I haven't used dipel since. The only thing with covering is pollination of fruiting plants.

    Any organic and fish friendly nukes for Aphids? Snake beans are getting hammered and it's attracting ants as well. I've got caterpillars but I'm not to concerned about them yet. They just eat the basil and kang Kong that I can't keep up with
