Snails and Slugs

These creatures do not damage turf, but they can be annoying. These pests, which are not insects, leave a trail of slime that appears as a silver trail when dry. They can damage bedding plants by feeding on young, tender leaves. Snails are about 1 inch long with spiral shells. Slugs vary in length from half an inch to 4 inches. They look like snails except they do not have the shells on their backs.

Snails and slugs are active at night. During the day, they can be found under mulch, in grass along sidewalks or patio edges, or under any object that may be in the lawn. Snails and slugs are best controlled with bait treatments specially formulated for these pests. When using baits, be sure to observe label precautions for use around pets and small children.
