Pests in the Garden?

Noticing any pests in your garden—rabbits, moles, slugs? Here are five tips to help:

• To deter deer and raccoons, tie old sneakers and clothes that smell of human perspiration to garden posts.
• Scatter garlic to deter many a pest—such as deer, woodchucks, and raccoons.
• To see a mole “run out, astonished” (according to 16th-century herbalist John Gerard), put a bulb of garlic in its hole.
• Sprinkle ground red pepper in entrances to mole tunnels.
• If your neighbors don’t mind, play a radio at low volume!
