Oh man...LOL. I live in Thailand and we have these pesky critters everywhere...They seem to enjoy gormetttte meals on every fresh seedling of veggies we plant. While back in the states, I used small trays filled with beer...(snails love to drink). That worked out well. They would come over, have a few drinks and die...I would rather be drinking the beer myself and only share with my friends...(who won't die)...I have tried Cayenne Pepper, sprinkled all around the new plants...Has anyone else tried this...? Seems to work, but not 100%...Can't use salt, as we all know that will destroy the soil...What to do, what to do...? Any advise would be very welcomed...We also have Cellar Snails...Another ruthless vegetarian...Heeeeeelllp..LOL. BTW...I am new here and want to say GREAT WEB SITE...!
