Got ya there! Nope, won’t ever happen. As long as we garden (i.e. manipulate the environment)—even in a kind and gentle way—we'll have pests. For a peaceful life it helps if you adjust your mind to this fact. We can however, minimize pest numbers. Here's my tried and true pest prevention plan.

Beneficial Insect Power

Beneficial insects are your go to smart solution.  There’s an army of insects on your side - parasitic wasps, hoverflies, ladybirds, praying mantis, spiders, dragonflies, assassin bugs, lacewings, various beetles, frogs and earwigs. They’ll manage pests, pollination and recycling of debris in return for a spray free home and a years’ supply of food. Fill your garden with a year round supply of nectar- and pollen-rich flowers, provide a simple source of water, an undisturbed 'wild area' for habitat and the beneficial insects will move in.
