What are some good preventative measures besides the obvious (being clean, no outside stuff inside etc) to keep pests at bay? I have yet to deal with bugs but I'd love to know a method of prevention that's close to fool proof. I dont want them :)

You can use Cannacure, its a nice product, to prevent pests and so on. It contains Neemoil too, and some benefical additives. Its very economic and easy to use ( they say even to a flowering plant. ) You can grow "company plants" like marigold, geanieum, basil ( all stinky stufff) Ihave been using nictotine tsolutions, neemoil solutions, plants..................................................

As prevention you can foliar spray with a bit of neem oil ( the smell will keep bugs away , the oil will kill the living bugs ). On the surface of the soil you can add something like clay balls , perlite or any layer in case of a fungus gnat invasion ( the larva are climbing from the soil to the plant). Last thing that could be useful is diatomaceous heart because it is "drying" the bugs but it is working better with a dry environment
