Slug & Snail Control in the Vancouver and Portland Area

Don’t let their leisurely pace fool you—snails and slugs can be some of the most persistent and destructive pests. Unassuming yet damaging, snails and slugs often go unnoticed as they wreak havoc in gardens and landscapes. 
These slow-moving pests have a voracious appetite for plants, making them a persistent nuisance in landscaping and agricultural settings. Their nocturnal habits often mask their destructive tendencies as they feed on various plants during the night, leaving behind telltale signs of their presence – chewed leaves and slimy trails.

Places That Attract Slugs and Snails

Snails and slugs tend to frequent areas that offer them moisture, shelter, and a readily available food source. Here are some familiar places where you might find these pests:
Gardens: Snails and slugs often inhabit gardens, attracted by the abundance of plants to feed on. They hide in damp soil, mulch, and leaf litter during the day and become active at night, foraging on plants.
Under Pots and Garden Containers: These pests seek shelter under pots, garden containers, or any items left on the ground that provide darkness and moisture.
Moist and Shady Areas: They are commonly found in moist, shady garden areas, such as underneath dense vegetation, bushes, or along the edges of structures.
Compost Bins: Snails and slugs are attracted to compost bins because of the abundance of organic matter and moisture, which provides them with food and a suitable habitat.
Damp Debris and Clutter: Any debris, piles of leaves, wood, or garden clutter that retains moisture can become a hiding spot for these pests.
Potted Plants: Snails and slugs can find their way into potted plants, especially if the soil remains damp.
Low-Growing Plants: They often gravitate towards low-growing plants or those near the ground.

Tips to Prevent Slug and Snail Infestations

Here are some tips to help prevent and control snail and slug infestations:
Regularly clear away garden debris, mulch, and leaf litter where snails and slugs may hide during the day to limit their shelter options.

Remove Hiding Places:

Since snails and slugs prefer moisture, remember to properly drain your garden. Avoid overwatering and keep the soil relatively dry, especially around susceptible plants.

Maintain Dry Conditions:

Check your garden in the early morning or evening, when they are most active, and manually remove snails and slugs. Dispose of them away from your garden to prevent their return.

Handpick Them:

Consider using copper barriers around plants or garden beds, as snails and slugs tend to avoid touching copper due to the electrical charge it generates.

Copper Barriers:

If you have potted plants, place them on stands or surfaces snails and slugs can’t easily access to prevent infestations.

Natural Repellents:

If you have potted plants, place them on stands or surfaces snails and slugs can’t easily access to prevent infestations.

Elevate Pots:

Some plants, like lavender, rosemary, or certain ornamental grasses, are less appealing to snails and slugs. Consider planting these alongside more susceptible plants as a deterrent.
