Make a beer trap

Kids Go Gardening - - Autumn -

Slugs and snails love the sweet yeast smell of beer. …. The slugs and snails are at­tracted to the beer, fall in and drown. 1 Dig a hol­low in the gar­den and place a small plas­tic con­tainer so the lip of the bowl is 5-10mm above ground level. Fill the con­tainer with beer.

2 To keep the rain out, place an up­turned pot or ice cream con­tainer over the bowl, cut holes at the bot­tom of your up­turned con­tainer or sit it on pieces of wood, so the snails can get in.

3 A brick or large stone on top will stop it blow­ing over.
