Slugs and Snails

21 Jan, 2021

Large number of species all in the class Gastropoda. Slugs and Snails feed on a wide array of materials that unfortunately includes plant leaves.

They tend to be active at night, so if you’re not sure what’s eating your veggies, go out at night with a torch. A tell tale trail of slime can also give them away.

Prevention

It can often be worth checking under rocks or pots during the day and disposing of any slugs and snails before they can wreak havoc.

Treatment

Sprinkle with Quash Slug and Snail pellets around affected plants.


Natural Treatment

Use Slug and Snail Traps. If you run out of the bait you can part fill the traps with some beer.
