Hi All,

Does anybody know if I try these two remedies for garden pests if they would be detrimental to my torts?

Okay I could not past the pic. But the remedies are vinegar (1 teaspoon of vinegar mixed with 1 litre of water.) and the other remedy is two cups of water with two spoon full's of garlic powder and spray them onto the plants.

Neither of those will harm your tortoises.
