|Help! I'm being overrun by lizards. They just consumed the cucumbers that were barely up.|
How do I get rid of these little pests!
|Lots of critters love tender seedlings - various rodents, slugs, birds, even lizards! Usually covering seedlings with a light, protective fabric confuses most pests enough to make them seek food elsewhere. You can purchase "Summerweight" row cover and wire support hoops from Gardener's Supply Co. (www.gardeners.com; ph# 800/863-1700). Anchor the edges with 2x4's to further deter those who try to slip underneath. Hope this helps! |
