When the hosta "eyes" appear, I mix one part household ammonia with ten parts of water and pour this mixture around the eyes close to the plant. It doesn't hurt the plants, but it does dissolve the eggs that are laid around the roots. It has reduced the slug population noticeably.

You take Irish spring soap *no other brand* and "shave" slices off it. Leave the thin slivers around the garden. To use it on trees cut the bar into quarters then use a metal skewer (like a shish kebab stick) to poke a hole through the quartered piece.

The scent of the soap is more than enough to deter the pests away from your garden and protect your trees all season long!
