In our gardens, slugs and snails often destroy the fruit of our work. Ideally, we would like to find a solution that would not only protect our vegetables but also our health. But when it comes to slugs and snails, for the solution to be effective we may still need to use slug pellets (though we can opt to use the biological kind.) The good news is that with the use of our innovative slug pellet containers we can now prevent this chemical from contaminating the soil in our gardens, as well as from harming our pets.

The traps that can help you are:

Use the following recipes

SLUG AND SNAIL TRAP IN VEGETABLE GARDENS using Vaso Trap without its funnel

Partially fill Vaso Trap with beer, or in alternative one or two spoons of snail poison (dry)

Close its upper lid, leaving the funnel out

Bury the trap making sure to position its mouthpiece 2 to 3 cm above ground


Fill the Lima Trap cup with an appropriate quantity of slug pellets (approx. 8g, 2 teaspoons)

Then apply the protective cover and the dispenser is ready fot use.


Multiple Lima Trap dispensers prepared in this manner can then be positioned in the areas to be protected (vegetables patches, gardens, nurseries, greenhouses, flower pots, etc.), at the points you consider most strategic or generally suitable

Remember to regularly rotate the position of your Lima Trap dispenser so as to cover the whole area to be treated, until has been fully cleared of pests; always check that slug pellets are still active when doing so.


Warning: Always remove the dead slugs and snails that are likely to accumulate around the Lima Trap dispenser, to avoid secondary poisoning of animals which are not the target of the pesticide ❖


After inserting the two 1.5V AA batteries (not included), insert the luminaire into its seat inside one of the semispheres. Sfera Trap is now ready to be assembled - How to do it


Before applying the glue, wrap the sphere with a transparent plastic film (such as cling film, or two clear shower cups); then apply a suitable glue.

In the event of loss of adhesion, the glue can be reapplied several times.


In addition to using only glue, or glue and attractants on it, Sfera Trap can also support insecticides and pheromones.


Practical advice: Use disposable gloves in the preparation of the sphere and the various products used. To avoid damage from possible spillage of glue, place a protective sheet underneath the sphere, such as cardboard or paper. In the eventuality of glue spillages these can be removed using white spirit or turpentine - How to do it
