Snail Trails

Bastard SnailsWas this before of after it ate all my newly sprouted plants? When I find it, its being launched over the hedge.



  1. Is it wrong that I take incredible delight and satisfaction from seeing a dead one melting away having eaten a slug pellet in my garden?!

    No…. but I’m a sap… I can’t kill them.. I just throw them and pretend I don’t hear them smash when they hit ground.

    OMG!!! That sucker must be huge. I don’t know how you can miss it with a trail that wide. Something else that kills them is stale beer. I put seashells in my garden & every now & then dump the last of a beer in them.

    I believe in free will. Place chunks of salt around and see how many lose. You have no hand in it and well they don’t have eyes either.

    Lindy I tried the beer trick before and the bastard snails (being pisshead British ones I suppose) slid down to the beer, had their fill and then slid right back out!
