Snails Are About To Destroy My Farm Help. by keypad1: 12:36pm On May 23, 2016
Last farming snails were rampant in my farms and ate half of my crops. Now this year as the rain keeps coming the snails are now appearing from no where.

How do i deal with this situation?

Am sorry but from my naive point of view, isn't it a blessing in disguise? I mean u can hand pick the snail, eat the edible ones then sell the rest or is there something I don't know about snails? shocked

the snails are too small to eat na. Not more than my fingers. Will they grow bigger at all?

Kindly pick one and post a picture, let's see if its the type that will grow to a bigger size, who knows, you may from there start a snail farm business too, then every thing turn around for your good

Organic fertiliser especially cattle manure could be the cause. The birds will eat them.

You could spray with pesticide
