Slow Moving! Really Slow!

garden snails

Can you see him? He is hiding in the pine mulch!

There he is, moving kinda slow!

I watched this snail for about 15 minutes and during that time he only moved 2 inches. This time of year it’s easy to find the snails and slugs, they are attracted to the plant areas I am watering. Last night I found and killed 21 slugs in my garden.

As I sat there watching him, I couldn’t decide what to do with him. He was in my rose garden, so I knew he would not bother my roses but he could snail his way into the hosta garden. I ended up moving him into the woods. Maybe he will find another place to eat and I hope he didn’t leave behind any hiding babies or cousins! 🙂

  1. We’ve got hundreds of them in our garden Michael. I don’t even try and move them or get rid of them any more! If I put out a beer trap for them they’d just have a party! LOL!
