Using Irish Spring to deter garden pests
Check your leaves. Rabbits and deer will leave a clean cut or eat the entire foliage. Bugs will leave jagged edges and half-eaten leaves. You can keep your plants and veggies safe from the friendly herbivores without expensive chemicals or dangerous traps by using something you may already have: Irish Spring Soap!
The Irish Spring soap only works on pests like mice, rabbits, and deer (you'll have to address insect problems another way). While it isn't going to completely eliminate your problem, this simple remedy should keep most visitors at bay.
