Any lawn & garden center has *safe* pesticides available. As the article states, some are poisons so you do want to wash your veggies thoroughly.

Companion planting is also a safe and useful alternative to pesticides.

Spray made with habanero peppers and water works well for all kinds of chewing critters. They take one bite and move on to something else. This has worked well on several different vegetable plants as well as most of my ornamentals. Doesn't do any lasting damage, but definately warns them away.

If you care about what goes in your mouth, you should care about the air you breathe. We can chose better and safer products for us and our dear animal friends.

very interesting post, thanks Cher...did not know about the diatomaceous earth?? I plant marigolds all around the vegetable / herb garden and it also seems to keep out a lot of leaf eaters...
