Gardening specialist Boris recommends using multiple glasses of beer strategically placed to lure insects out.
‘It’s the sugars in beer that gets them giddy, position a few glasses of flat beer around the boundaries of your garden to keep them out.
‘They’ll not be able to resist their fate – but let’s face it, there are worse ways to go! Bugs like the stronger ales, so try using stouts if you can.’
