• Set out fresh grapefruit and melon rinds each evening in a moist, shady area plagued by slugs and snails. • Lay empty flowerpots or milk cartons on their sides in a shady area. • Water a small portion of your yard in the evening, and put down a small, wooden board that is elevated slightly on a rock. The slugs and snails will congregate on the board’s underside. 35 Pest and Disease Remedies | Fine Gardening
Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil.
