Use coffee to beat slugs? Beware, the EU pesticide police are on your trail

coffeeBrussels bureaucrats have ruled that gardeners who sprinkle coffee grounds around their cabbages to kill slugs are breaking the law.

Many coffee shops let customers take the grounds home for free, which can then be used as a mulch or to improve compost.

But the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has warned that any gardener using coffee granules to deter slugs falls foul of EU regulations.

The rules say that any active ingredient or chemical used in  gardening must be explicitly approved and placed on an EU list of pesticides.

This aims to stop people using ‘home-made remedies in a dangerous manner’.

TVNL Comment: Sure...only lethal poisons are permitted to be used in a dangerous manner! How do we allow these agencies to exist? They should be sprayed with pesticide!
