If you've ever grown hostas you know that snails and slugs are the bane of every flower garden. They can strip those lovely plants in a short time and break a gardener's heart. Well, I've found the perfect solution to this problem. Without using chemical poisons that wreak havoc with the environment I am now ridding the garden of these pests with beer. Yes, that's right, beer. I dig a small hole near a hosta plant and place a plastic cup inside with the rim at ground levcl. I pour in beer about two inches deep. The snails can't resist it! They come from miles* around to get drunk and die in that deadly elixir.
*snail miles, that is. 1 snail mile = 27 inches
