Yup, it’s been nibbling on my pretty Brussels Sprouts. It’s time to fight back – frugally and organically, of course 😉 There are many methods that people invented over the years and used to deter slugs from their garden. Those include: beer, copper tape, copper wire, Diotomacous Earth etc. Today, I’ve invented a new method to keep slugs away from my young plants using two common ordinary household items that EVERYONE already have. So far my method has kept those baby slugs from crawling up my little plants and I would like to share it with you. Take a look ^ ^ Come visit me on Facebook if you want to chat:

    I love your channel. Thanks for finding me. I? appreciate frugality and creativity. I noticed debris in this video. To discourage “pests” & take away their hiding places, I find cleaning all debris,dead & diseased plant material away from the plants helpful. Also crunched up (clean, dried) egg shells keeps the slugs away. I spread them at the base of bothered plants.
    -Peace, Mo

    That is a great idea. Please let us? know if it works for you.

    Thank you! The salt? tape will last longer if road salt is used. They might not dissolve with the morning dew like table salt.

    Romi, one pest at a time, jajaja! It hasn’t been warm enough here yet for me to get flying bugs. The only flying bugs I don’t like that hasn’t come yet are the white moths/butterflies that lay their eggs on my brassicas. Their little green caterpillars (called? cabbage worms) ate all my Red Russian Kale and Dino Kale last year.

    I’ve been getting holes? in my turnips too. That’s what’s causing them? I’ve never seen a slug in my life.

    Cute video!?

  • LilFrugalGardener 8 years ago

    I think because when I was taking them outside to be planted I didn’t harden them off long enough.? We had a few weeks of nice weather before it? was officially spring. I planted them one week before spring. When spring came, the weather turn cold and nights were below freezing. In the morning we had strong winds.

    Great idea! I’m confused tho; I thought B. Sprouts were cool-weather crops, like Cabbage? How did it? get cold burn?
