Gadgets To Keep Pests Out of Your Garden
Spring is here and our garden prep is well underway! Making our gardens bloom is one of the more satisfying summer activities, but it does require work. Some of that work includes keeping pests out of our flower beds and yards to help our plants thrive. But there are a few gadgets to make pest control a little bit easier. Here are 5 gadgets to keep pests out of your garden.
Buzz Off Pests don’t have to be bugs to bug you — they sometimes have four legs and fur! The Solar Animal Repeller keeps critters like rabbits and woodchucks from wrecking your grass and plants without having to resort to cruel traps and poisons, plus it’s easy to install. Just stake it in the ground and it charges in sunlight to activate a built-in infrared motion detector. When pests come within its 20-foot detection range, it triggers powerful, ultrasonic waves that turn animals away. It only activates when motion is detected, so it can run around the clock when it’s charged.
Good Scents The Patio Egg Pest Diffuser slows down the menacing whir of mosquitoes with good scents! The egg uses a DEET-free formula of essential oils that mosquitoes and other pests steer clear of. Fragrance diffuses through the porous egg and into the surrounding area, darkening the egg as it absorbs oil. The pleasant floral scent will “hatch” within 24 hours and be effective continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Protects up to 200 sq. ft. for up to 4 months. Hang it with the included plant-fiber net or set it on a flat surface.
Double-Duty Decor Don’t let bug spray ruin your next cookout! Repel bugs with style with this Set of 8 Citronella Streamers! The streamers add whimsy to your outdoor decor as well as fight off bugs — each colorful streamer is coated with lemongrass oils and natural citronella that mosquitoes and pests don’t like. The scent lasts up to 48 hours so you’ll have protection from the start of the party all the way through cleanup!
Nature’s Bug Bait Don’t let wasps ruin your day in the garden with this Set of 2 Wasp Traps. They use all natural ingredients you mix up at home — just sugar and water! It lures wasps to three spots where they can get in, but they can’t get out. You can hang them from a tree branch or put them on the porch where there’s a flat surface. They’re long-lasting and durable so you can use them day after day.
