Abstract

This study was based on interviews with the local population. Surveys show that the population uses solar power to control insects in the conservation of corn kernels and disease-carrying insects. In addition to solar heating, people use smoke, mixing piles, ash and grain, scarecrows, hunting birds, etc. This study allowed knowing the types of traditional techniques that the population of Bukoma uses. These traditional techniques would make it possible to do without modern methods, in this case chemical methods which have already shown their effects on the environment; hence the need to promote and enhance these traditional methods.
