1 Snails on 7/23/2018, 6:04 pm

I had a neighbor tell me his yard is covered with snails. It is suppose to be an invasive species which is just taking over the panhandle. Has anyone had these snails in their yard?

Last week my daughter had caterpillars. Moth type....thousands of them. On the house, sidewalks, and the pool. They were striping the palm trees. After having the trees trimmed they went away. They will have to watch for sod web worms now.

Are they slugs? If so, you can drown them in beer.

I have heard the infestations are growing and people are being advised to salt them........apparently salt kills the snails. I would not waste a beer on drowning a snail. It must not be impacting by the beach, but it is bad further North in the county. People have their entire back yards covered with these snails. I am surprised there has not been something in the PNJ.

The PNJ copies USA.

Not slugs. They are brown and have spikes. The spikes make you itch like crazy. They eventually drown in the pool or burn on the hot concrete.

No snail "invasion" per se here on the island, though we have seen a few of them here and there (including attached to our garage door and adjacent concrete walkways/driveway) over the past couple of years. Never used to see them at all.

Interesting. Wonder why the PNJ hasn't reported on this - at least not that I've seen.

Ours were caterpillars.. capable of stripping a tree.
