The Q&A Archives: Snails and Slugs

Question: What can I use to control an enormous amount of snails? They seem to be much more because of all the rain.

Answer: I use the iron based product (Sluggo) and it works really well. I like it because it is harmless to wildlife and pets and if it is not consumed by slugs or snails it degrades into simple iron, which is good for the soil. You just broadcast the product around your plants and it is quite efficient. Best wishes with your garden!
