BUGS BE GONE
Grubs, bugs and birds like to feast on homegrown goodness. Cover crops, especially organics, with fine gauze netting. Or encourage beneficial insects and use organic controls such as bioinsecticide for caterpillars, beer baits for slugs and snails and even a vacuum to suck up bugs! Homemade soap sprays, chilli sprays and oil
based sprays also work well. Trap fruit flies before they mate and lay eggs in fruit with a luring bait, such as Ecolure. Or place fruit trusses in sheer organza bags. Companion plant brassicas with sage to protect them from hungry cabbage
moth caterpillars, or place bread bag ties on small stakes near crops to confuse the moths as they think your garden is already occupied!
