Garden pests can come in all shapes and sizes, but slugs and snails bring the slimy element with them. These small creatures can cause major damage to garden and greenhouse plants, which makes them a prime enemy to any gardener.
Getting rid of snails and slugs isn’t complicated, but can be a little tricky because of their nocturnal nature. Knowing a little more about snails and slugs can help you control the damage they may inflict on your plants.
Snails and slugs are not insects, but mollusks, and are related to clams and oysters. Garden snails have a hard shell that provides added shelter, while slugs do not have an external shell. They feed on both living and dying or dead plant matter, eating leaves, stems, roots, and fruits. These animals have eyes on the end of stalks that give them a distinct appearance, and leave mucous trails that help in their identification during the day.
These small mollusks are very active at night when it is cooler and damp and hide during the day, usually under rocks and stones or any shady, damp area. They chew large, ragged holes in leaves, will eat seedlings, low growing fruit, and roots. They are actively feeding from spring to the first frost. Hostas, strawberries, lettuce, and cabbage are especially vulnerable to snails and slugs. Because of their nocturnal activity, it can be difficult to find snails and slugs in the garden to identify them as the culprits of your damaged plants.
For comprehensive snail control and slug control, you will have to combine methods and techniques.
