Radik Responded on 4th Oct 2018 We am lucky to have weeds that bloom all 10 months of vegetation season. I am no-till horticulturist, and some of my commercial cultures also bloom almost all that time. This allows many predators (wasps mostly) love our orchard, and make home here. Also lucky we are that nearest traditional farming with use of pesticides is 2 km away and average wind-rose is keeping the fragrance of their blossom in times, apart from my little helpers. We only plant few rows 80 meter each, of tomatoes for own consumption and for many relatives and friends - now between those rows, there are ever-blooming weeds too. I also found that tuta absoluta is not suppressed there where there table spices grown, like dill, anise and parsley. Those small size wasps hate them and don't come there where they are growing. But for tuta absoluta these plants have no effect. So if there are tomato around these growing spices, they will not be protected. No need to buy those expensive things above. Truly! Just go back to nature.
