snail1.pngSnails & Slugs

Some people may not be aware of the extent these mollusks can damage gardens because they are nocturnal. Snails and slugs damage plants & seedlings and can devour plant leaves & seeds leaving unsightly holes and tears that can leave the plants vulnerable to plant rot, fungus, viruses and bacteria. 

The holes and mucus slime they leave behind can make plants unattactive and sickly. 

Crushed egg shells will help deter snail and slugs as well due to the abrasiveness against the soft bodies.


The slug bait we use is NOT a pet friendly! If you have pets, pet-safe options are available at local stores.
