This year I'm trying not to use any chemicals. May that be fertilizers, plant food, weed killers or pest control. So far my biggest problem has been slugs and snails. So here's what I'm trying.
Coffee grounds ( used ones) - these seem to work but need replacing after rain.
Sand - apparently they do t like a gritty surface.
Beer traps - jam jars buried with beer at the bottom. They are attracted by the beer smell and drown happy and drunk.
Removal - today I went put after the rain and collected a couple of dozen. They are in the picture below!! Most were hidden under plants but I got them!
