Help for controlling garden pests using eco-friendly methods

Here are some common garden pests and organics ways to send them packing.
I don't believe in using anything toxic anywhere near my family. You can also make
your own sprays with a combination of soapy water, alcohol, etc. Coffee grounds and eggshells will help repel ants, snails and slugs in the soil.
Aphids Vegetables, Flowers, Herbs,Shrubs, Trees Insecticidal Soap Lady Bugs
