Description
Bugs, Slugs and Other Thugs They slip through the woods under cover of darkness. They drop from the sky shamelessly in broad daylight. They tunnel furiously through the earth. Their destination: your garden. Year after year, your garden is the target of insects and gophers and birds and slugs seeking a free meal. While you may be willing to share part of the crop, damage sometimes gets out of hand; then it's time to take action. Bugs, Slugs and Other Thugs is for gardeners who've lost more than their fair share of the garden to bad-mannered insect and wildlife pests. It's a practical guide to pest controls that are safe for both the user and the environment. Author Rhonda Hart equips you with information that will help you identify the intruders and then offers a host of practical, environmentally sound solutions to your pest problems. Remedies range from the latest scientific advances to tried-and-true folk remedies that really work:*Interplanting vine crops with corn will keep raccoons away; they dislike the unsure footing.*Clippings of cat or dog hair might be enough to ward off rodents and other pests.*A mulch of eggshells, gravel, or oak leaves sends slugs packing. Consult Bugs, Slugs and Othe Thugs before surrendering antoher season's garden to insect and wildlife pests. A healthy, bountiful harvest can be yours this season.
