Tiny snails

Mary Jordan AnsteadKMS Woodworks


We have a beach house on the gulf coast of Florida and when the weather turns hotter we find these very tiny white/grey snails in the yard and climbing the walls outside. Any ideas on how to get rid of them there are hundreds of them?

    I know of tricks using small shallow dishes of beer to "trap" slugs in the garden. I used this trick a number of years ago in my greenhouse. Rather than waste good micro brew we used some nasty bud lite that was left by a guest from one of our parties. since snails and slugs are very close cousins biologically , this might work as well. I also know of some folks who have used DE (ditatomaceous earth) this can be purchased from pool supply centers and some garden centers.

    The beer didn’t work for my snails. Not even one snail was in the beer dish! Now I just drink it myself and look at the snails.
