Answer: Hi Jenny,

Wrens tend to eat a variety of foods including insects and seeds and are often seen foraging in the undergrowth of domestic gardens. When spraying any pesticides, ensure that there is no wildlife present in the vicinity of the area you are spaying. Depending upon which insect you are wanting to control, there are products such as Dipel, Success and Natrasoap which are low toxic or naturally derived product which are very effective in controlling a wide range of caterpillars, aphids, thrips, mealy bugs and white fly. All of these products have minimal impact on the environment and break down rapidly into natural components.
