Even in the garden, there are pests and snails that spoil our work: in the case of the former, it is very useful to protect ourselves from the threat to better treat our work without pesticides or to minimize it.

In the case of snails, however, we can help with natural methods, but also with the use of intelligence and security of slug pellets, perhaps biological, by managing them so as not to contaminate the cultivated lands.

Slug and snail traps in vegetable gardens using Vaso Trap

Partially fill Vaso Trap® with beer, or in alternative one or two spoons of snail poison (dry),
and close its upper lid, leaving the funnel out.
Then 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: large quantities of dead slugs and snails are likely to accumulate around the Lima Trap® dispenser.
These should be regularly removed to avoid secondary poinoning of animals which are not the target of the pesticide.
