Insect in the garden

DIY Insect Repellent for the Garden & Home

Spring and summer is the perfect time to work in the garden. Whether you’re a novice or a green thumb, it can be really frustrating when bugs get into your plants. One way to steer them away? Flour, naturally!

Grab a large spice canister and add in 2-3 cups of flour. Shake and sprinkle the flour liberally over your plants. This encourages the bugs to eat the flour rather than through your prize-winning herbs and tomatoes. If you’re worried about bugs getting inside, line your kitchen windowsills with flour to ward off any nasty little intruders.
