This week, community member Joan wrote to us, asking for some community advice:

Can anyone please tell me if they know what I can use to kill snails? I would like to be able to  make it myself. I have a lot of orchids and the snails are attracted to me. Thank you.

Can you help her? What is your advice?

  1. Years ago., my mother had a snail problem. She gave each of her and children a bucket of water to see who could collect the most. She didn’t tell them the water had salt in it. It worked like magic.

  2. Snails love beer, but they drown in it. Put pots of beer around the orchids that snails can crawl into and they will be gone. It doesn’t prevent them coming tho’!
