Slugs and Snails
Slugs and snails are soft-bodied animals; depending on the species, adults can be 25 to 100 mm long. Snails can withdraw inside their shell. In harsh conditions, they can seal the shell and stay inside for several years.
During the day, slugs and snails hide in damp places like under logs and stones and emerge at night. Both eat leaves of plants and create a slimy trail as they move. Because snails have shells, they need calcium in their diet. If limestone is not available, they will feed on painted surfaces.
Slugs and snails lay eggs in the spring/summer seasons. The eggs are covered in soil and hatch within a few days. Slugs and snails can live several years.
Homeowners may not see slugs and snails, but their slimy trails and feeding damage to plants is typically apparent.
Preventing slugs and snails means eliminating their hiding places:
- Store firewood off of the ground and away from the house.
- Planters and flower pots should be placed on racks or stands
- Remove lumber and stones that can make for a damp hiding spot.
- Make sure exterior doors close properly and replace weather stripping or door sweeps.
- Make sure crawl space vents are open to promote circulation and reduce dampness.
