Peel from a well-known fruit is the easiest way to get rid of pests in your garden – you may normally throw it away

PESTS can eat away at the hard work people put into their gardens.

Thankfully, peels from a popular fruit can be the easiest way to get rid of the damaging insects, so gardeners shouldn't be quick to discard them.

Orange peels can help get rid of the pests that run rampage in gardens.

The peels can lure the slugs out and by the next morning they the peels and slugs can be discarded, according to LifeHacker.

Start by slicing the peel in half and removing the fruit from one side. Then slice that half into strips and set those in your garden.

Once the slugs come out and are sitting on the strips, you can remove them from your garden.

Orange peelings can also be a natural bug repellent for your garden.

Many of the pests that call your garden home will move on since they don't like the smell of oranges.

This can be accomplished by slicing a few orange peels into strips and setting them in your garden. Make sure to replace them once they start to dry up; the drier the peel, the less effective it is.

The peels can also be used to make a bug deterring spray.
