Have you ever thought of using oatmeal in your garden?

Most people have oatmeal sitting in their kitchen cupboards, but few know that it can be an excellent solution for a common gardening problem: pests, particularly slugs.

The Oatmeal Method

There are two ways to implement this trick. If you have a large garden, you can sprinkle dry oatmeal in areas where there are no plants. Alternatively, you can prepare a small plate with wet oatmeal and place it in your garden.

Slugs are attracted to oatmeal. By placing oatmeal in your garden, you can lure them away from your precious flowers and vegetables. The slugs will be drawn to the oatmeal and will leave your plants alone.

If you opt for the plate method, it's essential to check it periodically. Once you notice that the slugs have gathered around the oatmeal, you can move the plate to another location in your garden. This ensures that the slugs don't get too comfortable and start exploring other parts of your garden.

So, if you're tired of pests nibbling on your plants, give this oatmeal trick a try. It's a simple, cost-effective, and eco-friendly way to keep your garden healthy and pest-free.
