Buying the nematode treatment is worth every penny when you put time, effort and money into seedlings and your food crops only to find they have been devoured overnight.
It took years of organic gardening, to get toads, frogs, birds and beneficial insects to do most of the pest control. The balance comes, but just not the next morning, (That means seaweed and chicken pellet based fertilisers, homemade garlic bug spray, no digging, compost mulches etc).
Anomander: Frogs and toads send their best regards. For your lottie a sunken half barrel is enough of a pond...."Build it and they will come"
