slugs and snail eggs


Recommended Posts

Just a reminder and especially to newbies now is the time to be looking out for snail & slug eggs especially in sphagnum moss as they like to lay in moist dark places

remove or be overrun they only take about a month or so to hatch

regards

I find that you may not get all their eggs as slugs can lay theirs deep in the soil or at the bottom of the pots and it is tedious with the re-potting or re-planting. Luckily enough that the molluscs are all alcoholics and can't resist beer. I find that beer traps are the fool proof way to control slugs and snails. After setting traps in my planter and cloche after fresh leaf tips getting nipped last year. I've not had much of a problem since.
