Natural traps and barriers will help stop slugs and snails from devouring plants.
Made from the mineral remains of single-cell aquatic plants, diatomaceous earth is a super-fine dust that kills by abrading and dehydrating crawling insects. It controls slugs, ants, cockroaches, beetles, earwigs, silverfish, fleas, bedbugs, millipedes, centipedes, and other crawling insects without the use of chemicals within 24 to 48 hours of contact. Apply as a dust or a slurry. All-natural and earthworm-safe. Made from the fossilized shells of ancient sea life.
These sheeps' wool pellets are an ingenious way to control destructive slugs and snails. Spread them around plants and then apply water. The moisture causes the pellets to swell, forming a dense mat of rough wool fibers that irritates the pests, encouraging them to feed elsewhere. The woolen mat also helps conserve soil moisture and acts as a weed block.
Pour in a little beer, then spike it into the ground, partially bury it, or use it lantern style to protect all the plants these slimy pests find tasty.
This adhesive copper strip forms a protective barrier around pots or raised beds. When a slug tries to cross to feast on your plants, it's deterred by a small electric shock.
Stop slugs from feasting on your prized hostas, strawberries and lettuces. Slug Magic pellets contain the active ingredient iron phosphate, a naturally occurring mineral. Once slugs ingest it, they stop eating and die within a few days. Sprinkle on the soil surface near affected plants — pellets remain effective for a full two weeks even if it rains.
