Pesky Critter Tips:
1.) Got a problem with those pesky little barn swallows nesting on the front or back of your porches causing SHTF (Stuff Hitting The Floor)? Simply put a bead of lemon-scented dishwashing liquid (Joy, etc.) along the edge where they are trying to build a nest and they will go somewhere else. Caution: Barn swallows are a federally protected species and you’re not supposed to interfere with their nests once they’re started.
2.) Got a problem with slugs or snails in your garden? Sprinkle the area around your plants with either coffee grounds or crushed egg shells. This creates an abrasive barrier that they won’t cross.
3.) Got a problem with the deer munching on your plants? Take your deodorant soap scraps; place them in a piece of old hosiery (Do Not use the wife’s good ones!) and hang in and around your garden and your plants. The fragrance from the deodorant soap will discourage their appetite for your goodies!
