If you’ve got ants, cinnamon is the answer. Although we love the delicious scent of this lip-smacking spice, these pesky insects don’t! Simply shake cinnamon around the area where the ants seem to be entering from. This powerful powder will not kill the ants, but it will certainly send them marching for the hills.
Fungal infections are common – especially in regard to vulnerable, young seedlings. Cinnamon is a wonderful, natural method to help keep the slime mold in check, and give your seedlings the best chance at a happy, healthy life.
