Snails and Slugs

Snail and slug damage can be confused with feeding by other pests such as earwigs, caterpillars, or other chewing insects. Look for silvery mucous trails to confirm that slugs or snails caused the damage, rather than other pests.

Take back your garden from snails and slugs.

Snails and slugs are among the most destructive pests found in gardens and landscapes.

What do snails and slugs look like?
Slugs and snails have soft bodies, but snails have a hard shell covering them. Adults can grow to be 25 to 100 mm in length.

 

Behavior & Habits
Slugs and snails enjoy hiding in damp places. You’ll most likely find them under planters, below decks, or under logs. They feed on leaves and plants during the night and return back home during the day. They both lay eggs in the spring and summer and cover them with soil. The eggs hatch in just a few days and have been known to live for many years.

 

Your New Slimy “Friends”
Most people will recognize a slug or snail infestation by their slimy trails left behind or damage to their plants. They are a huge nuisance when they come into your home and can damage a number of plants.

 

I bet you didn’t know this:
Because of the snail’s shell, they need a lot of calcium. Limestone is their favorite, but can also get calcium from other surfaces.
