Pests in the Garden: Slugs & Snails
Michelle Young | Apr 18, 2020
Are you repeatedly finding slugs & snails in your garden areas? They are among the most destructive pests found in gardens and landscapes. These pests eat plants, mushrooms, and fruits causing irregular holes on flowers and leaves. These animals thrive in damp, shady spots. Did you know that slugs can deposit as many as 100 eggs in Spring and early Summer? Don’t let slugs and snails take up residence in gardens you might be slaving over for hours. There are many ways you can get rid of these pests, such as handpicking, sticky traps, and other pesticides. However, First Saturday Lime is an effective, easy, eco-friendly, and safe product (when used as directed) to repel these pests. Our insect repellent lasts longer than pellets you may have to apply 2-3 times a week and is less expensive than many other options that are available to purchase; bonus you don’t even have to remove those pesky sticky traps from your garden areas!
To apply First Saturday Lime to get rid of pests like slugs and snails, spread a 2-inch lime barrier around your garden area (yes, it’s still safe to eat your veggies from your garden). Wait a couple of days to water and only reapply approximately every month (like the First Saturday), or when you notice your border has disappeared. Soon you’ll forget you had a slug and snail population, and you’ll be able to enjoy all your hard work in your beautiful garden. Say goodbye to the liquid crystals and uneven leaves slugs and snails leave behind for good with First Saturday Lime!
