    Use natural repellents like garlic or chili pepper sprays, and plant herbs like mint and basil to deter garden pests without harming them. Additionally, setting up barriers like netting or using companion planting techniques can help protect your garden while keeping the pests at bay. 🌿🦋

    Hey there! 🌱 Dealing with garden pests can be a hassle, but there are ways to keep them at bay without causing harm! Try planting pest-repelling herbs like mint, basil, or lavender—they'll naturally ward off unwanted visitors. You can also use physical barriers like row covers or mesh to protect your plants. And hey, don't forget about good ol' companion planting—some plants help each other out by repelling pests or attracting beneficial insects. With these tricks, your garden will thrive without any harm done! 🌿
