Borderland: Agricultural Pest Control
IS PSYCHOTRONIC PEST CONTROL POSSIBLE?
By William S. Peavy, Ph.D.*
For years, I have worked as a consultant to growers fighting a
continuous battle with pests: weeds, insects and diseases. I am trained
for and experienced in how to solve crop and soil problems by
conventional methods as well as some unconventional ones. I do not
recommend to clients practices which are not proven. To be proven, they
must have shown themselves to work during a good, objective field
So far as I can tell, psychotronics is an interesting and even exciting
possibility but not yet proven. I've yet to see any good, hard data to
prove its claims. I would welcome the opportunity to objectively test
What is "psychotronics"? Peter Kelly defines it as "the interfacing
between mind (the operator) and matter (that which you are attempting to
affect) using a specially designed Psychotronic Tuner." According to Dr.
Tiller in the De La Warr Newsletter of Summer, 1972, "Radionics...deals
with the interaction between mind and matter..." So it appears to me
that "psychotronics" is just modern terminology for, and the same thing
Crop problems are much like human problems. There is a thing called
prevention but it is generally ignored until a crisis develops. Now if
a grower is to pay off his mortgage we must get a cure when a bad
problem shows itself. And one that is effective, quick and cheap.
Nearly always, chemical control meets the three needs. Quick, easy and
cheap. And sometimes not so cheap. Chemicals for pest control have
their undesirable side-effects just as drugs do in humans. But if you
have a $100,000 crop loan you will look for a quick fix just to survive.
Then worry about consequences later.
Chemical pest control leaves bothersome residues. Maybe the use of
subtle energy would be effective yet not leave these residues. The
question is, how effective is subtle energy in combatting pests?
How could subtle energy kill bugs? Orthodox science knows little about
this but maybe it is not the molecules of pesticide that poisons the
insect but the radiant energy of those molecules. If so, what if we can
radiate the insects with an energy similar to that of the pesticide?
This might kill the insect by radiations.
But how to get the radiant energy out into that particular field with
all those billions of bugs? The usual way to transmit energies to the
farmer's field (or treatment area) is by use of a recent photograph. It
needs to be only hours old so a Polaroid camera is usually used. You
will need use of an aircraft to fly over the field for an aerial photo.
The emulsion on this photo will connect you and your subtle energy
device to the field. The photo's radiations will be the same as those
of the field.
It is claimed that if you mix up the proper formulation of the proper
pesticide and spray or smear this mixture on the aerial photo, then you
can psychotronically transmit the killing "vibes" of the pesticide to
the bugs in the field.

Take aphids for example. Diazinon is very effective in killing aphids
by spraying on a mixture of say 1 teaspoon per gallon of water. You
would mix it this way, then smear it on a photograph of the aphid-
infested field, then transmit subtle energies to the field by
Another serious pest of farming is the weed. Can weed control be done
by the photo-smearing process and psychotronics? Take onions, for
example. A client called me recently to ask if he could take out the
weeds in his onion field psychotronically. It was too late for
prevention. He was in a severe crisis and needed a cure quickly to save
his crop. All I was able to do was to discuss some possibilities with
him. He probably needed a good, post-emergent weed killer like "Goal"
which is a selective broadleaf herbicide. Properly applied, it will
selectively kill the weeds but leave the onions intact even though all
plants in the field get the spray. But if you mix up too strong a
solution you kill both weeds and onions. If you spray it on at the
wrong time you can kill onions. The same rules should apply
psychotronically. The only difference is that with one you apply the
spray by physically covering the leaves of all plants in the field. The
other way, you transmit subtle energies of the spray solution.
Can psychotronics be used for prevention of pests, diseases and weeds?
Perhaps so. It is thought that insects and diseases are attracted to an
area where unhealthy plants are broadcasting certain frequencies. The
same idea as what causes vultures to flock to a dead carcass. The
carcass is giving off odors detected through smell by the vultures. The
sick plant is giving off subtle energy signals that guides pests to the
Peter Kelly says the new psychotronic approach is to prevent a field
from broadcasting signals that attract pests. He suggests
psychotronically testing and treating soil, seeds and fertilizer. But
the same old question remains: where is the hard data from controlled,
field experiments to prove these methods work, if so, how well?

CLIPS, QUOTES & COMMENTS
"FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE. Grinding up bugs in a blender with water and
spraying them over plants could revolutionize insect control and save
farmers millions of dollars, according to an article in 'Organic
Gardening and Farming' magazine. The technique, suggested by a 1972 U.S.
Department of Agriculture entomologist, was tried by a Florida peanut
farmer who had been spending $2000 a year on chemical insecticides. He
collected a half-pound of pests, ground them up, sprayed them over his
74 acres, and reported that dead bugs fell off his vines within a few
days. The farmer doubled his peanut yield, leading his county with
5,300 pounds per acre. Just why the method seems to work isn't known,
but it's a biological axiom that no organism can survive in an
environment composed of its own waste products."
From THE SPOTLIGHT, Nov. 15, 1976.
This brings to mind an account given by Trevor Ravenscroft in his "Spear
of Destiny" concerning Rudolf Steiner who used an almost similar method
to rid the estate of a German nobleman that was being over-run with
rabits. According to the book Steiner was quite successful.
