Get rid of slugs and snails without chemicals or unsightly traps with this lovely trio of froggy friends
The average garden contains around 20,000 slugs! If you’re a keen gardener you’re probably all too aware of this from the tell-tale nibbles in the leaves of all your lovely plants. The nasty chemicals in products like pesticide and slug pellets can end up killing other animals and are not really something you want near the fruit and veg that’s going to end up on your dinner table. Luckily there is a natural solution!
Much like humans, slugs and snails are attracted to the smell of beer and will travel over quite some distance to get to it. This is because of the yeast that’s used to brew beer; the smell of it resembles the yeast produced by overripe fruit - a garden slug’s favourite food. When slugs and snails smell the beer they will crawl into it and drown.
This is a traditional method that’s very popular with gardeners for protecting their plants without the need for harsh chemicals. Some people choose to leave the beer in a dish or cup, but this is extremely unsightly as nobody wants to see a container full of brown liquid and half dissolved slugs!
This cute little frog will guard your garden for you!
Genius Ideas have come up with a way to rid your garden of these slimy pests while making it look more attractive. These cute frogs will look great sitting around your plants and your guests will think they are just normal garden ornaments. However, underneath that froggy grin is a secret slug trap that can be filled with beer. This will trap slugs and snails and exterminate them away from view.
Hand painted in classic green, these frogs come in a pack of three to provide good coverage of any garden. Place them anywhere you like; next to some plant pots, in your flower beds or even in their natural home by a pond! They will add a touch of fun to your garden while protecting your precious plants from harm.
If you would rather not waste your beer on slugs, you can also create your own slug killer mixture using the following ingredients:
- 2 cups of warm water
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp yeast
