Best tips for removing pests
Some insect pests, such as slugs and snails, caterpillars, earwigs, beetles, and weevils, are large enough to remove by hand. Use your bare or gloved hands, or try a tool such as kitchen tongs to pick them up if you’re too squeamish to handle them. Crush pests with your fingers or dump them into a jar of soapy water and they’ll die instantly. You can also hold a jar of soapy water under a pest on a leaf and knock the creature into the jar.
Pluck slugs and snails off plants and drop them in salt water or beer (though it’s a shame to use perfectly good beer for this purpose). When you’re weeding or cultivating your crop, if you notice cutworms in the soil, dig them out and destroy them.
