The growth of plant pests like the plant lice is due to various reasons. It can be caused by lack of adequate knowledge about how plants grow and about pests. There are some people who think that plant pests only exist on the plants they eat, but there are some plant pests that can infect other plants as well. The plant diseases or insect pests are a problem for agriculture because they destroy the quality of the crop produced and they contaminate the soil where the crops are grown. Pests that infest the environment negatively affect the human health too.
The major cause of plant pests is the use of pesticides. It is difficult to control plant pests once they have taken root in the environment. Various insects and their larvae can survive in soil that is poorly drained or is contaminated with other harmful substances. Pests like the plant mites, aphids, spider mites, whiteflies, plant viruses and fungi can infest various crops, and pesticides used to get rid of them result in plant damage, crop loss, and plant stigma disorders.
Biocides and herbicides are commonly used for controlling pests like the plant mites, aphids, spiders, whiteflies, and viruses. However, agriculture uses a different method to control pests from affecting their crops. They use chemical fertilizers that help them increase the crop production and improve soil fertility. This results in better pest control as well.
Plants that are grown in soil that is infested by plant pests experience stunted growth rates, leaf discoloration, and distorted plant growth. The leaves of these infested plants may also become blotchy and may appear as if they are not growing at all. Some of these infestations can survive only for a few days. The plant growth rate and quality will deplete very quickly. The plants will also lose color and become deformed. If not treated early, the infestation will continue and will eventually kill the plant.
Some of these pests increase plant growth rate in order to feed on the plant. The plant growth rate will then be less than the normal growth rate. This will result in a plant that does not have the capacity to meet the demand of the consumer market.
In order to protect their crops, farmers must use chemical sprays that control the root structure of the plant. This will prevent the roots from being damaged by the pests. It will also restrict their ability to take up food for themselves. The sprayed roots will only grow on the side of the plant that is unaffected by the infestation.
There are two methods used in controlling pests from attacking a plant. One method uses physical barriers such as nets, barriers, or traps. The second method uses biological means such as nematodes. Biological traps can be used in conjunction with physical barriers for better control of the soil. However, traps must be maintained regularly in order to trap the pests, especially when they are active during the night.
Plant pests will also attack a plant due to poor soil management practices. For instance, if a plant grows in poor soil where it is not fertilized, it will suffer from lack of nutrients. If the plant is not watered, the growth rate will be lower than normal. In addition, if the soil is not adequately mulched, the plants are exposed to too much heat and light from the sun during the hot months of the year. When temperatures rise, the insects will become active and destroy the plant.
There are many common plant diseases that cause a plant to grow abnormally. These include yellow mildew, root rot, leaf blight, powdery mildew, and stem disease. Some of these diseases are plant viruses or parasites. They tend to attack plants in early summer, usually before the first frosts have occurred. They can damage the plant’s root system, cause the plant to abort growth, and make the plant become vulnerable to drying out.
Aphids, green lacewings, spider mites, mealy bugs, scale insects, and white-flies are some types of plant insects that can greatly affect plant growth and development. Aphids, which are small insects that attach themselves to a plant’s leaves and stems, suck plant juices and excrete honeydew as they do so. They cause leaves and stems to wilt and die. They also cause a plant to grow sluggishly and deformed.
Other insects can cause the plant to grow poorly, and in some cases, the plant may not grow at all. The leaf virus and the stem ring virus are examples. The leaf virus damages the plant’s tissues and leaves, causes it to grow unevenly, and stuns the plant growth rate. The stem ring virus affects the main stem of a plant and deforms it, so that it will not grow properly. Other insects that can affect plant growth rates include: white-flies, ants, carpenter ants, dry woodworms, dust mites, ticks, white-fly and yeast fungus, Gypsy moths, lacewings, root busters, and the evergreen tree diseases.
