    please don't use Styrofoam – sooner or later it is going to be in the landfill, or back in your garden and that stuff never decomposes.

    Egg shells do work to repel slugs and snails, but ONLY IF they are ground up to the coarseness of corn meal. I do it in a blender or food processor, but use an old blade because the shells will dull it; use a new blade for kitchen uses. Larger pieces of shell are no impediment because the pests just crawl around them.
    For larger pests, powdered egg dusted on leaves, stems, and soil will repel rabbits and deer because eggs are toxic to them; they will not eat it.

  23. Bhuvanesh Moorthy July 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

    this is very useful for our daily life I like it very much

  24. Sassy Sanders July 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

    I would NEVER NEVER NEVER recommend putting razor blades in a garden……rust and terrible cuts can send you to the hospital.

  25. Mel Teague July 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

    I don’t know any candle that would stay lit outdoors to put a drop of hot wax onto the cut end of a pruned rose stem.

  26. Rhonna Marsden July 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

    Slugs and snails aren't insects

  31. spangenbob July 12, 2018 at 5:36 am

    The tip about putting razor blades should not be done. If you forget about the razor blades in your pot you could cut yourself. Use nails instead. Good video Thank You!!!
