Tired of sharing your vegetable garden with slugs and snails? Show them who's boss! Use these chemical fee remedies to cut down on their population.

You don't need pestisides to get rid of snails and slugs.
There are natural ways to get them out of your vegetable garden.
Salt, beer and egg shells will do the trick.
First thing in the morning, take you salt shaker with you to the garden.
Not pleasant to watch, but sprinkling salt on the slugs will kill them.
Slugs and snails aren't able to walk over crushed egg shells.
Scatter the shells around tomato plants and wherever else you notice they have been dining.
The next time you open a bottle of beer, open one for the slimy creatures in your garden.
Poor the beer into jar lids and place a few around your plants, flush with the soil.
They are attracted to beer and will walk right into the trap, drowning before they can escape.
Slugs and snails live under pots and rocks in the garden.
They lay eggs here too.
It is best to not have these or any other decorations available to them.
Another home of theirs are weeds.
Keep the slug and snail population to a minimum by regularly pulling weeds.

I have a fish tank, which has a moss ball and two shrimps in it, and there is also lots of wee snails. Recently I have noticed there is a web like thing over my plastic plants.


if you have a heater running in the tank over time the water will go down.
depending on what snails you have will depend on the breeding.
if the snails started to show after you put the moss ball in then yes they have come from that.

What does a groundhog like to eat


In the wild they eat foliage, nuts, grains, ferns, flowers, grass and fruit. Favourites are chickweed, dandelion, clover, plantains, asters and sorrel. They love juicy plants, cherries and blackberries. They also readily eat cultivated crops like peas, lettuce, beans, squash, broccoli, corn and soybeans. Fully mature groundhogs can eat a lot of plant matter -- more than a pound daily.

They are not completely herbiverous. They occasionally eat snails, june bugs, grasshoppers and small bird eggs.

If you plan to have one as a pet, be aware it needs a lot of space, will chew everthing in sight, doesn't like cuddling, and will hibernate in winter. In some States they are ******* as pets, so check that. You might also consider having a rabies shot as they can carry that.

How to stop snails from eating my tomatoes


Egg Shells
Egg shells not only deter slugs and snails, they also act as a fertilizer. They are especially beneficial to fast growing plants like fennel, peppers, green beans and tomatoes. They deter slugs and snails in much the same way as DE.

How to use:
  • Rinse shells thoroughly and air dry
  • Place in bag and crush
  • Spread crushed shells around bases of plants

Make a Beer Trap
This method seems to be favoured by people I've talked to and in books I've read. The critters fall into the beer and drown - cruel, I know, but it's them or your plants.

How to use:
Bury a recycled pie plate, plastic container in soil so that the brim is level with the soil. Some people just place a saucer in their gardens. Fill with beer to near to top of container. Check trap daily to dispose of pests and refill with beer.

What do snails eat


What do land snails eat?

Land snails are mainly herbivorous, which means they eat plant life. There are a few snails that are carnivores, but chances are that your snail in not. Snails love to eat just about anything you would put in a garden salad. My recommendation is to start with some romaine, green leaf or even ice burg lettuce. Snails tend to like the softest and wettest part of the plant. If you have an herb garden that produces far more herbs than you need then try picking the newest leaves off of some of your herbs to see if they like them. Apples and carrots can also be a favorite of your pet snail. The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your snail and bring that to them. During the winter you will have to rely heavily on the produce in your refrigerator to keep them well feed. Remember if the snail is eating all the food you gave him or her then you need to leave more out for them. Slightly rotten food is just fine. They are not terribly picky as long as you give them a food they enjoy.
One last tip: During the spring and fall when your grass is the greenest make sure to cut a big handful of grass for your snail to eat. Both land and the common garden snail love grass and most leaves.

What do water snails eat?

The common water snail is predominately an herbivore. Water snail mainly feed on the algae that will naturally grow on the inside of your fish tank or fish bowl. If you are putting a new snail in a fish tank then watch out! If you have any vegetation in the tank that you are fond of then do not put your snail in the tank. Larger snails can wipe out all plant life in just a few days.
Snails also eat algae along with the microscopic creatures that naturally live in a healthy ecosystem. In most cases you will have to supplement their diet with fish food. Along with fish food cubed up apples and carrots are a favorite. It will take a day or two for the apple or carrot to sink to the bottom. Once on the bottom and partially decayed your pet snails will thank you for the treat.
Tip: If you have more than one snail they are going to reproduce. To help minimize the number of snails in your aquarium you can simply cut back on the about of food you feed your little guys.

What do beetles eat ?


"Beetles eat all kinds of food. Most are specialists in few kinds, but some, like ground beetles, eat lots of things. Most beetles eat plant parts, either leaves or seeds or fruit or wood. Many are predators on other small animals. Some eat fungus, and there are a bunch of species that eat dung. Sometimes the larvae eat different foods than the adults do."

What do slugs eat


Don't know what your question has to do with "Weapon Scopes & Sights" (the catagory you asked in), but here goes:
They eat a broad spectrum of organic materials, including leaves from living plants, lichens, mushrooms, and even carrion (dead and decaying flesh of an animals).
Some slugs are predators and eat other slugs and snails, or earthworms.
Slugs can feed on a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, including flowers such as petunias, chrysanthemums, daisies, lobelia, lilies, daffodils, narcissus, gentians, primroses, tuberous begonias, hollyhocks, irises, and fruits such as strawberries.
They also feed on carrots, peas, apples, and cabbage, if that is offered as a sole food source.

I dont know what kind of food to give my snail


Depends on the snail. Most land snails are herbivorous, consuming plants or algae, some are not so picky about their diet and there is even some predators (e.g. powelliphanta, "amber snails") that feed on worms and slugs.
