Cumubers + Aluminum Cans

Post  vanter0109 on 7/29/2010, 1:26 pm

Has anyone heard or tried putting cucumbers in aluminum cans in the garden? Supposidly it is supposed to cause a chemical reaction that keeps away pests but is not harmfull (for us). But I don't know what kind of pests.

Any input would be great.

I saw this on a website " Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a
small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long.
The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a
scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them
flee the area." The website is http://www.wellness.chanun.com/healthy-eating/the-amazing-cucumber
