Poison.... Your Verbascum sure does look pretty. What lovely blooms. Big Grin

This past weekend I had an interesting conversation with a gentleman. He wondered if I had an ideas for getting rid of some moles he had in his yard that the chems he bought that were supposed to work didn't. Than we got to talking about other insects and he mentioned the fact that he was dealing with flea beetles and squash bugs and that instead of using seven dust or any other type of chem he sprinkles all-purpose flower on his plants and in his garden to kill and keep them away.

Out of curiosity has anybody else ever tried using the flour? I know he was specific about using the all-purpose and not self rising. I been trying to figure out how the flour might work to keep them away or dead. Also, I would think that when you mix water with flour you end up with a paste that does harden. Seems like it would suffocate and kill your plants or make plaster molds of the leaves at least.
