After bidding farewell to my dill and basil plants, and watching my marjoram and parsley (my tabouli!) being rudely eaten away every morning... I decided to take more action. I also may have been inspired by the King of the Hill episode about the organic gardening, I decided to use a beer trap... its not like I was drinking the beer anyway.
I dug a hole for the bowl next to my parsley and marjoram, put the bowl in and filled it with an ice cold Budweiser... I hardly expected anything to be in it the next day. It was a dead bug jack pot. 20 earwigs, 9 small beetles, 2 cutworms, 4 slugs, and a ton of other bugs I couldn't identify!
I am now a beer trap believer!

Apparently, the bugs love the smell of beer and go to drink it, fall in and drown. I didn't add any extra yeast to mine but I will be. I am also gonna start buying like a 1.99 six pack of beer for these traps.
Why should I give these bugs the semi good beer? I would have cried if I had to give them good beer... like Mothership Wit!
