We live in Kansas and this is real unusual. Why are they here? Will they ruin our lawn? How do we get rid of them? It’s sooo freaky! Help!
I don’t think snails care what state or country they’re in, just so long as there’s a bit of moisture around. I would say they came in something you have recently bought & grown if you didn’t have them before. I know here in Sydney Australia, there are always a lot appear after rain. They eat many things but I don’t know whether lawn is one. Put saucers of beer around, they climb in and don’t make it out again. If you don’t have kids or pets use snail pellets.
# Keep all decaying matter cleaned out of your garden beds.
Clear all dead leaves from the garden.
# Cultivation of the soil will help kill hibernating slugs and eggs.
# Remove slugs and snails by hand. If you are too finicky, use chopsticks. If you get the slime on your fingers or hands pour a little cheap white vinegar on your hands and wash
Slugo everywhere! It is not harmful to plants, animals or small children
