Now that summer is getting close, the bug and slug problem will be booming soon. What home cures and remedies do you use?
For slugs, I make that old fashioned corn meal and pennies mixed with water. (hint, make the water solution green-blue first by adding a little salt to the water before adding flour or corn meal) This mixture of dough attracts slugs which come by the hundreds to eat drink and die! Works on snails too!
I also throw old pennies everywhere around the bench back areas where its hard to reach and even under the stepping stones and under wooden bench corners, etc and this works wonders too! Copper is deadly to many invertebrates (Ever read that fish medication where it contains copper and label reads may kill snails, invertebrates, etc.)
As for other pests that is not eaten by my nepenthes. I use the corn meal and even oatmeal DRY mixed with boric acid powder. Mixed together in a low pan kept away from birds, etc.
This is effective in killing roaches, ants, crickets, etc. Plus its safe that when they die, you have a pile of dead insects that is safe and ecxcellent for your pitcher plants!!!
What's your cure-all?
