Coastal snails

Zone 6530 | carolineh286 added on October 7, 2016 | Answered

I'm having a huge problem with the small coastal snails. I have used two packets of snail bait but they are still everywhere. I have never had this problem before. They are even in the Berry tree.

A combination of hand-removal and other methods is often the most successful with snails and slugs. The hand-removal helps keep the population down while the other methods work. See these articles for help:
