With the arrival of the rains, some mollusks appear that, although they may turn out to be very nice, the truth is that, like all herbivores, they will want to try the occasional morsel of your plants. It is convenient to have them controlled , since otherwise we could end up having very damaged plant beings.
So, I am going to tell you how to eliminate snails from the garden or orchard , using natural or chemical remedies.
Get rid of snails in the garden
These small mollusks are sometimes difficult to see during the day, since they take advantage of the hours of less light to feed . Given this, you may only see the damage they have caused. Fortunately, we have several products within our reach that will help us repel or eliminate them, depending on what we decide.
In nurseries and garden stores you will find molluscicides, both in powder and in granules, which you will have to place around the plants you want to protect. If you have pets or small children, it is very important that you put up a barrier (a metal mesh, for example) to prevent them from getting close to the product.
In organic gardening there are several natural products that will keep your garden safe from mollusks, which are: ash , garlic or onion .
Eliminate snails from the garden
In this area of the garden it is very common to find snails. Perhaps our first reaction is to use chemical products, but since these are plants that will later be consumed, it is preferable to use natural remedies . Among them we find, in addition to ash, garlic or onion, are the snail traps that we can make at home. How? Very easy: we just have to pour a few drops of beer into plastic containers, and bury them a little in the ground.
Another option is to pick them up and take them away from your land. So, you won’t have to worry 🙂 .
