Chapter 24 Repelling Pests

Patterning a crop field or garden with the appropriate IDF can cause the pest to leave. I tried this once in an enclosed greenhouse, and the owners never did find out how the bugs got out of the greenhouse, but they all disappeared.


1. Normal Start-up.

2. Place a Sample of the crop or field in the Cell. (as above)

3. A written request is the easiest IDF for patterning. The strongest requests are worded so that they include what, who, when, how, and why. Here is an example of a good request: “ALL CORN BORERS LEAVE THIS FIELD NOW SO THIS CROP CAN FLOURISH.’’

This includes:

All corn borers (the who)

leave (the what and how)

this field (the where)

now (the when)

so this crop can flourish (the why)

It is important to include all the above items for the IDF to be effective.

4. With the properly worded IDF on the computer screen, mentally ask how long you should run the program. While rubbing the plate, think: 1 minute, 2 minutes, etc. until you get a stick.

5. Set a timer to remind yourself when the time interval is up.

6. Set the Amplitude Knob at 100 and the Measure/Balance Switch into the Balance position.

7. When the time interval is up, set the Measure/Balance Switch to Measure, and remove the Sample from the Cell. Clear the computer screen.

8. Check the Amplitude of your original IDF, i.e. Pests, and see what has been accomplished.


Working with crop and field IDFs can become a full time venture. The many variables and techniques available can require extensive study and training. In classes taught by New Horizons Trust, they get into measuring the basic essentials of soil, including calcium, magnesium, phosphate, potash, nitrogen, sulfate, and sodium. They concentrate on micro-organisms that make good crop growth possible. Using techniques of this type, it is possible to farm organically, and produce high yield, nutritious crops, with excellent storage characteristics.


Q. Are there any good books about Agriculture.

A. An excellent reference book is: Science in Agriculture by Arden B. Anderson, Ph.D. Available from Acres U.S.A., P.O. Box 9547, Kansas City, MO 64133.
