I have snails all over the place..They seem to really like my wife's passion flower..What are the best ways to get them out of here? . I have tried squishing them,flicking them off the plants, sweet talking them, and complete verbal abuse..They just don't pay attention!! should i reserve to gas and a match??

I had some slug problems recently, too! I went to Home Depot and bought Nature's Care which cost me about $7. Just sprinkle some pellets around the dirt at the base of your plant and it should take care of those pests. Make sure you don't add salt to the soil in your desperation!! It was my first instinct but when I researched it, adding salt to the soil actually makes it toxic and will kill your plants. Good luck!
