Snail control

I have had luck with using sand to deter snails and slugs. Pour a circle of
sand, about one inch across, around the endangered plant. Soft bodies get
scraped by the sand so they don't try to cross it. My opinion is that this
is better than diatomaceous earth because the sand will dry out after it
rains and still be effective, DE will not. Also you have to wear a mask
while applying DE.
