There is a whole scurrying, jumping, munching, flying, plant-destroying army in my backyard and they are grossing me out.
Even though I read that once they have grown to adulthood and are thoroughly enjoying your garden you cannot win, – oh, win I intend to!
The organic method:
Water plants and then sprinkle with good old-fashioned all-purpose flour. The flour will gunk them up as they try to eat and like a large Thanksgiving dinner, will swell up in them as they drink to clean out their insides. They deserve it.
The more direct and “Jeanie-ous” idea:
Carry a badmitton racquet with me into the garden.
Uh-huh. We’ll see, suckers!
