$1 solution for pests attacking a dozen plants

Post  jkahn2eb on 9/16/2011, 2:36 pm

Bought a sleeve of big red plastic cups for $1 at Dollar Tree and a sleeve of blue cups.

I cut the bottom half off with scissors, buried the bottom rim of the cup and planted seeds or placed the cup around a small plant previously attacked.

Zero losses after a week. Going to expand this to flowers I seeded in the garden. Gone overnight without the cups.

Great ideal. Another thing that works if you have cut worms is to take a drinking straw and slit length wise and put it around the stem of you plants down to the root ball and to the bottom leaves of the plant.
