Any ideas on natural pest control? I heard beer will kill slugs as well as salt. Any other ideas?

I have two tips for controlling insects in your yard. The first one is Thai lemon grass is a natural and effective mosquito repellent. I have it growing in a pot next to my herbs because my herbs are near where we sit in the backyard in the spring and summer. I was also told by my mother and it has been confirmed from reading books and trying it myself that planting marigolds around the yard helps to ward off bugs because they have a smell that bugs do not like.

Hi gardener, you can use cow urine (diluted) for this purpose. It is a very good natural pest controller & a plant manure also.
