Slug-repelling Copper Bands

These copper bands are one of the best, non-harmful slug repellants around. Slugs and snails hate copper because it causes a harmless electric shock-like reaction when they come into contact with it, so they crawl away. Bend them into rings and push them into the soil at the base of your plant.

Each time you crack an egg open, instead of tossing the shell into the trash, drop it into an open container that you keep in the fridge. When the container is full, crush the shells into small bits and sprinkle them around the base of your plants. The sharp eggshells will deter slugs, snails, and other bugs from nibbling on your garden and add a touch of calcium to the soil.
