The Q&A Archives: snail and slug pests

Question: I live in the Denver, CO area and for the last three years we have been dealing with snails and slugs. They are not indiginous to this area but are multiplying rapidly. They are ruining my vegetable and flower garden. Any help would be greately appreciated.
Thank you

Answer: I, too, deal with slugs and snails and they can multiply at alarming rates. I use a bait called Sluggo. It is iron based so any that is not consumed breaks down into simple iron, which is useful to the soil. Sluggo is harmless to wildlife, pets and people and does an excellent job of controlling slugs and snails. You might give it a try.
