Are these pesky creepy crawlers infiltrating your garden?

Try these "home made" methods for keeping the population down.
  • Wood Ashes! Snails and Slugs hate wood ashes. Sprinkle the ashes around your planted flowers and vegetables.
  • Beer! Fill a plastic tub with beer and place it in the garden. The slugs will creep in for a sip and drink themselves to death.
  • Flat Boards! Place a few old boards in the garden. Every morning turn the board over, you will find that it will be covered with those little guys taking a snooze. Which will allow you to dispose of them accordingly.
