Root System Of Roses Have Lots Of Baby Snails

Question From: Macon, Georgia, United States
Q: Have lots of baby snails in the root system of my roses. How is the best way to get rit of them? Wife says "Epsom Salt" spread lightly and watered will do the trick.

A: I would use a product call Sluggo or Slug and Snail Bait. Both are made with iron phosphate and are harmless to the environment.Take samples of the snails with you to the independent nursery for an accurate Id before you treating the roses. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
