Someone suggested to use crushed egg shells to get rid of cutworms. This is the best idea I ever heard. It's even better then the pellets I used to get earwigs and cutworms. It's also working well but egg shells don't cost you any money, we all buy eggs regularly. Who was the gentleman suggesting this? I can't find it again.

Instead of composting my egg shells I dry them and crunch them up and store in a container all year to sprinkle on my beans after I plant them. The cut-worms and slugs don't seem to like the feeling of the shells on their underside. The egg shells end up in your garden and serve a purpose too.
