Getting Rid of Snails

I've never had enough slugs or snails that were bothersome, but I've heard putting a shallow dish filled with beer out will attract them and then they drown or to sprinkle them with salt. It's worth a try and at least it's a living being and environmentally safe way to go. (06/10/2010)

Slugs usually don't come to bother us till about end of August into September. The beer is a good thing, set it near the garden and also in the garden. They like the beer, they bloat and die from it, here in MN, zone 4. (06/10/2010)

  1. Put out a jar lid full of beer and the snails and slugs will go in it at night and be killed. Replenish daily as needed.

  2. Get a duck. They eat snails. (06/11/2010)

I think salt kills snails, but not sure if it will also harm the plants. (06/14/2010)
