What eats slugs


Hedgehogs, newts, toads and some birds, such as song thrushes, love to eat slugs and snails, so it is a great idea to attract these beneficial creatures into your garden. Probably the best way to attract them into the garden is to make a pond or boggy area, which they will use for drinking or as a place of refuge.

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 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.
