    Zone 6B or 7 can't decide
    That was my take away also - eat fresh garlic every so often also.

    After @CrealCritter post re: pinworms and fresh bramble fruits, I also did an exhaustive search. I could find nothing written re: link between pinworms and raspberries/blackberries. Given the fact that pinworms are very easy to pick up, without doing an O & P check on the suspected fruit, I don't know how one could point to any one thing as the source.

    Given the conditions in the fields/orchards where produce is harvested... with accompanying lack of sanitation... and the fact that ova can survive for up to 3 weeks, IMO it would be more probable to pick up ANY parasite from produce bought at your local grocer than in your own back yard.

    Feeding animals garlic helps them, too. Same reasons. Yep our feathered and furry friends "share" with us. :lol: The garlic in their systems helps lessen flea infestations, too. Guess fleas don't enjoy Italian :D
