Organic Gardening - How to Deter Slugs and Snails With Eggshells

221K Views
Are you tired of visiting your gardening in the morning only to see that other little critters have been up all night feasting on your plants? I love plants like my hostas and vegetables and hate to see them riddled with holes from snails and slugs.
I have something in common with slugs...we both love hostas and vegetable gardens. But, there is something they hate that I love - eggs. They slink away from eggs shells as soon as they feel the sharp edges!
Snails and slugs hate anything that's sharp or rough, so you can save your eggshells and use them underneath your plants to deter them! It really works. Coffee grounds and several other things works as well, and are mentioned in the article link.

    I suggest another route for slugs. Bury a shallow dish like a plant saucer or something like that up to the rim beside the affected plant. Pour enough beer in it to cover the bottom. In the morning, check the saucer, you'll have lots of dead bodies
