Use coffee grounds to keep pests away

By Mary Rose Roberts
My cousin Barbara is what I would call a country girl and likes to cowgirl it up. She always gives me tips on how to live more simply, from the earth, and different ways to recycle and reuse. I learned something new from her last week: Used coffee grounds can keep away bugs. Instead of tossing coffee grounds in the garbage and later in a landfill emitting methane, put grounds in your garden or even around the perimeter of your house. In the case of insects like ants and slugs, the odor works as a repellent.

It’s a great alternative to using harsh chemicals in your garden and around your house. It also will save you money.
