I heard that it is possible to make your own organic pesticide using chopped chilli, garlic and soap.

Does anyone have any advice or experience with making organic pesticide?

Also, how to handle slugs and snails? A dish of beer apparently works well?!

I Have tried using Crushed garlic in water to prevent slugs from attacking my cabbage
How to make:
100gm Garlic (Crush)
1 l of water
Squirt of soap
Mix & strain using old cloth
Apply immediately

You would need to reapply about twice a week
and i had some success, but i used this method along with a range of other slug prevention techniques
