Fighting snails in the garden - beer helps


Snails in the garden are uncomfortable and disgusting. But before you tackle the snails with poison, two tips on how to do it without.

Hobby gardeners are often overwhelmed when it comes to taking on small and nasty snails. They eat their way through the vegetable patches and do considerable damage.

Fighting snails - with beer instead of poison

This can be remedied. Buy some snail traps from specialist retailers and fill them with beer. Attracted by the smell, the snails fall into the specially shaped trap and no longer come out. Then the traps are simply emptied and the procedure starts again, if necessary. In this way, entire armies of snails are removed without interfering with the ecology of nature through snail venom.
