This is how you get yourself a snail free garden!
Snails and slugs are often unwanted visitors in any garden; both varieties are very willing to eat through your flowers, plants, fresh vegetables and herbs. Has your garden been invaded by these slippery creatures? This is how you can get rid of them very easily.
Snails pose one of the biggest problems for gardeners. They eat both dead and alive vegetable material and dead animal material. Especially at night they flock to your garden for a veritable feast, which means your garden will look very sad in the morning. Snails start procreating in April already; they lay 400 eggs that hatch three weeks later. That’s why it’s important to get rid of them before they become true pests.
Since prevention is better than cure it’s important to take preventive measures. You can do this by regularly hoeing your garden so the top layer of soil dries out and the snails won’t be able to move around as easily. Also avoid dark and damp patches in the grass (this is where snails like to hide) and place nest boxes around your garden to attract birds that will eat snails. Has the damage been done already and have the snails taken over your garden? Then there are some other things you can do to get rid of them.
