Vanmorgen ging ik de tuin in en toen zag ik heel veel slakken op mijn zonnebloemplanten. Ze deden zich te goed aan de bladeren. Niet leuk. Op Facebook vroeg ik of mensen een tip wisten. En ik kreeg een heleboel leuke tips.
  • koffieprut
  • eierschillen
  • schelpen fijnmaken
  • rietje rond de stelen met vaseline erop
  • ...


I was in the garden this morning and discovered a lot of snails on my sunflower plants.  Adept climbers eating my sunflower leaves. I've read that Vaseline smeared round a pot can prevent snails climbing the sides and sharp mulches also deter the leaf munchers. But I think I have to make at trap. A dish, halffilled with beer. What is the best I can do?

Snails are mostly known for their speed, or lack thereof. I love to look at them. They live in almost all habitats, from deserts to deep ocean trenches. I picked my snails from the sunflower plants and put them into a bowl. Later I made a short video and shot some photos.

A short video 🐌🐌

Leuk om met slakken te spelen 😊

Ondertussen zoek ik toch echt naar een oplossing. Ik heb ze nu in de gemeente tuin gegooid. Ze moeten een heel lange weg afleggen om weer bij mijn zonnebloemen te komen. Maar inmiddels heb ik al weer een tiental andere weggehaald. Zucht.
  • Do you also find snails in your garden or home?
  • What sort?
  • How do you deal with them?

  1. I find it interesting that the snails would climb a sunflower stem. Those stems seem very abrasive to me, but I guess they don't mind.

  2. Cool snails, love your photos. We had some snails in our pots a few years ago so we crushed some sea shells and placed them in the pot. They didn't like that because the shells were abrasive but it got them to move on.
    Good luck!

  3. Snails are really interesting little slowpokes. Loved the video. I don't see too many actual snails here, at least not enough to pay attention to. So this was fun to watch. Thank you. God made the snails too!!

  4. Ha Aritha, slakken kunnen een plaag zijn, maar toch, ik vind het interessante beestjes, ze zijn ook zo lekker traag en sjouwen hun hele huis mee.
    Groet Kees.

  5. Ze eten van onze Hosta's, maar zo blijven ze wel uit mijn moestuintje voorlopig:)

  6. A very interesting post. Great photos and video of the snails. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  7. Lovely photos and video :) I hope the snail doesn't eat the sunflower totally.

  8. We have had so much rain the snails are out in force! Great photos. Have a good weekend, it is nearly here, Diane

  9. The snails seem to enjoy the rain, and here in the UK we've had a lot of it quite recently … and yes it brought the snails out.

    I did enjoy your short video.

    All the best Jan

  10. Haven't seen any snails around here lately.
    Interesting that they climb up the sunflower stems!

  11. They look rather cute. Well, the world is full of damaging cuties. I use vinegar for everything; try it,maybe it'll help:)

  12. Mooie foto's van de slakken, de video is ook prachtig.
    Als je maar geen slakkengif gaat gebruiken, want daar sterven de vogels ook aan, als die een slak eten die net van het gif hebben gegeten.
    Ik zou echt de koffieprut proberen.
    Groetjes Irma

  13. I’m from USA am here to give my testimony about Dr Robinson who helped me cure my HERPES (HSV), i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS), i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. Three months ago a friend suggested that I try herbal medicine; from a very powerful herbal doctor called (Dr.Robinson) I looked up his blog on the internet site and indeed he have had immense success with his product. There were lot of persons posting their testimony about how he cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result just came out negative.
