Tired of snails and slugs eating all of the flowers, herbs and vegetables in your garden? Instead of using chemicals and traps, get cracking with eggs instead. When you scatter eggshells around the base of a plant, they do two things. First, eggshells are rich in calcium, so they will break down and add nutrients to the soil. But second, the jagged edges of eggshells ward off snails and slugs; when those creatures come in contact with an eggshell, they immediately turn around because it’s too sharp for them to crawl over.
