Abstract:The purpose of this experiment was to determine whether or not ginkgo biloba extract could be used as a natural pesticide. The hypothesis for this experiment was that the ginkgo biloba would deter the slugs from eating the lettuce leaves that were treated with the ginkgo biloba products. The results were that the ginkgo biloba products had no significant effect on the slugs’ feeding habits.
