Basic steps to ensure a successful Snail and Slug Control Service

  • When possible, keep yard areas clear of clutter to reduce hiding places for snails or slugs. Your technician appreciates a clear field to spot evidence of snails and slugs and to apply his expert skills to get rid of them.
  • Well-kept lawns and gardens reduce the amount of food available to Slugs and Snails and brings to light hidden areas of infestation.
  • Watering schedules should be maintained or reduced, and broken pipes and sprinklers fixed. Snails and Slugs need water to survive and moist soil in which to live and lay their eggs. Overwatering encourages them to hang around.
  • Never leave pet food outside in open dishes, especially overnight. Pick up fallen fruit from the ground, and harvest your fruit and garden produce regularly.

These suggestions are all geared to deprive Snails and Slugs of what they need most, to survive. Safe harborage (shelter), Water and Food.

It is important to call if you see activity between services. A quick response keeps Snails and Slugs under control.

Snail and Slug Control is only successful when we work together to accomplish our mutual goals: keeping them out of your yard and away from your gardens. Combining these measures with Corky’s Snail and Slug Control Service is our path to a successful Snail and Slug control program.
