How to repel garden pests with Irish Spring Soap.

Supplies needed:
Irish Spring Soap
Cheese grater

Basically you can just start grating. This stuff is really soft and takes little to no energy to grate it.

The amount you grate will depend on how much space you wish to cover. You will find that this is a reasonably priced soap, so if you have a large garden or a few container gardens you won’t go broke trying to buy enough soap.Pest Control A1 Exterminators

Once your soap is grated you are ready to sprinkle. The idea is to create a wall or barrier that the critters won’t want to cross. Put the shavings  far enough away from the seeds, but close enough to clearly mark the area off and keep critters back.

Even after a few good rains the soap, and it is still there. It sort of swells and gels up, but it stays in place and continues to work. You can add more if the soap washes away, but I have found that it is pretty stubborn and stays in place. Since this is a natural garden pest prevention, there is no need to worry about pets or kids going near it. It’s soap!

This is a perfect option if you are looking for ideas on how to repel garden pests naturally. Give Irish Spring a try and grate your way to a pest free garden…naturally!
