Ok A few tips did come in and they sound pretty good!

1. One person fills a sprayer with 3 tablespoons of salt and 2 gallons of water. When the salt gets on the leaves it kills the slugs and snails!

2. Put Copper line around your plants. Encircle your plants with copper and the snails won't cross the wire!

3. What about a spray bottle of water and diatomaceous earth. You are to spray the plants and the ground so that the snails get dehydrated!

4. So I was informed that I was not setting my beer traps correctly. I should use something like a jelly jar and sink it into the ground so it is flush with the soil. Then fill it with beer ¾ th’s full. Wait for them to fall into your trap! You can also use ½ tsp. baking yeast and 1 tsp. sugar in water instead of beer!
