Snail Patrol

Those little slimy snails and slugs can cause a big problem in the garden.  They can munch to the ground seedlings, make your hostas and other perennials unsightly, and destroy a vegetable garden  in just a few days.  I have 3 great homemade slug bait remedies.

Chris's Yeast Slug Bait Recipe:

1 cup water
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of flour
1/2 teaspoon of dry yeast

Just mix in a bowl and place a couple of small bowls full of your mixture out in the garden.  It is best to tuck the bowls of this secret mixture under the foliage of your garden plants where the snails and slugs hide.

Chris's Slug-Be-Gone Natural Spray:

I use a spray bottle 3/4 filled with water, few drops of liquid soap and 1/4 cup of ammonium.  All you have to do is just squirt the chlorophyll suckers whenever you want.
