These slow-moving insects are bound to crash your barbecue, since they love beer almost as much as humans. Fill an empty tuna or cat-food can with beer and bury it in your garden soil up to its rim. Overnight, slugs will move into the beer and drown. You can throw out the entire can in the morning and replace it with a fresh batch. The only catch is, each trap only attracts slugs within a few feet of it. If you have a serious slug problem, consider placing multiple traps around your yard. Slugs aren’t the only pests in your yard to worry about, mosquitoes are annoying too! Here are eight plants that repel mosquitos naturally!
Put a wooden board or two on the garden soil—but far enough away from your plants—and snails will take shelter in the damp shade beneath them. Pick up the boards and scrape the creatures into the trash. Alternatively, you can spray them with a vinegar solution, equal parts white vinegar and water, and then dispose of them. Another pro tip: Always water your garden in the morning. If the soil is dry at night, critters like slugs and snails will be less active.
