Sugar Hack
Everyday items in your home can serve multiple functions you might not even be aware of, such as sugar acting as a cheap alternative to rid your garden
of worms.
Nematodes, or roundworms, are tiny insects that live below the soil’s surface and who mimic damage caused by droughts, such as withered leaves and bumpy roots.
Common table sugar can get rid of these parasites from your garden and deter further infestations because nematodes are drawn to sugar and will eat it
until they die.
You can use sugar as a pesticide hack in a variety of ways. One of the simplest methods is to sprinkle granulated sugar directly on plants and soil using your fingers.
Another method is to mix 2 cups of water with a half-cup of regular sugar and boil the concoction while continuously stirring until the granules have completely dissolved.
After that, dilute the liquid with 1 gallon of fresh water and spray on and around affected plants, thoroughly saturating the leaves and soil.
