Slugs & Snails
    #778966 - 05/16/15 07:27 AM (1 year, 6 months ago)

Hello, I was wondering how many of you have had problems with these awful hermaphrodite creatures. I kinda have this problem now, I'm not sure though, because I haven't seen my plants in a week or so (but I heard from a fellow of mine who said my plants are growing really fast (like 20-30cms in 5 days and they are now half a meter and around 20-25 days old). Anyway, I've noticed before leaving that there was a lot of them (snails) so I was picking them and throwing away, far away, but I bet they are eating my plants while we speak. The essential question - does coffee grounds work? I've heard that these creautres really like them and when they eat it, they get heart atack and simply die.

They sell slug bait, just make a line around your plants.  Not difficult

Anywway, I've put the coffee grounds all around the plant, checked it next day and saw many slugs and snails dead. Works!

I had snails reduce a couple of my outdoor babies to sticks in the ground earlier in the season...
Fun times

It seems like you have already gotten some good answers.
Slug bait is of course a given, but if you want to go free and organic I suggest Coffee grounds like several other people have, but also try some egg shells just crumble them up and either boil them or bake them on a cookie sheet for a few minutes. Slugs and snails hate to crawl across them. As an added bonus the Grounds are a nice nitrogen supplement, and the eggshells may give you some bonus Calcium.
