Keeping our patch totally organic we decided to install a few beer traps, to lure those snails and slugs. We recycled old take-away food containers, dug them into the ground and filled them with beer. We clean out our traps every day or so and refill them with the leftover dregs from all the beer that is consumed in our house. Hey -we can't waste the good beer!!!
We feel a little guilty about getting snails so drunk they die (we hope they're 18+?)
Our 1st victim, R.I.P.
