. What about bugs?
.
If you're worried about bugs, earthships probably aren't for your temperament :) Seriously though, bugs have not been reported to be an appreciable problem in earthships. The highest concentration of bugs will usually occur in the planters along the greenhouse, but since the planters usually encourage tremendous health and vitality in the plants that live there, bugs usually exist at tolerable levels and are seldom cause for alarm. They play a role in your ecosystem too. Certain common bugs such as aphids and other common insects have been successfully controlled or dispelled by natural means, such as spraying the plants with water enriched with tobacco or with water clouded with bar soap.
