Rid your garden of snails and slugs
Submitted by c dos santos
An effective and completely safe method to rid your garden of snails/slugs is to apply a liberal sprinkling of tobacco dust. It kills the pests (as well as their eggs when it works its way into the soil) and drives the survivors away. Reapply after rain, as it seems to lose its effect when it gets wet. Tobacco dust should be available at any nursery.
