What are slugs dangerous for

The slug is a gastropod mollusc which as a result of long evolution has lost its shell and simultaneously adapted to live in very different climatic zones and conditions. All it needs is a shady, preferably humid place during the summer daytime, and food in the form of juicy leaves, vegetables or berries at night. Such conditions are present in almost every vegetable garden, and finding a slug there is not a problem. The more garbage there is in the form of boards, heaps of last year's leaves and leaves, the more likely it is that slugs appear. Getting under stones and bricks during the winter, these delicate-looking pests manage to survive low temperatures. And it's not surprising, as a dark and cool cellar is the dream of each mollusc, and if fruits and vegetables are kept there you may not even think about changing the place of residence.

Slugs, like snails, damage potato shoots and tubers, leaves of cabbage, lettuce, peas, beans and other vegetables. Often their favorite dainties are strawberries, young cucumbers, tomatoes, grapes and even citrus fruits.

Meaten leaves and fruits is not the greatest trouble the slugs bear. Crawling from one plant to another, the mollusks often transmit various fungal and virus diseases, which is a real threat for cultivated plants.

How to get rid of slugs

In the wild the slugs and snails are rather useful animals. They recycle fallen leaves and turn them into humus. But taking into account all the risks which appear together with slugs on a site, it is clear to fight them.

And though mollusks have many natural enemies: birds, frogs, lizards, hedgehogs, slugs manage to survive somehow, reproduce and spoil crops.

Before starting slug control, you should clean up the site - weed the weeds and remove all garbage. Weeding reduces soil shading, improves ventilation of crops, reduces air humidity, thus worsening conditions for slugs.

We should do everything to deprive pests of a comfortable shelter. Mollusks especially like to hide under planks, stones and bricks, therefore all unnecessary things should be removed.
