Snails and slugs

As described in my book, Easy Organic Gardening and Moon Planting, to catch snails and slugs, you only need a small amount of beer in the bottom of a plastic jar, or yoghurt or dip container that is buried in soil under mulch. Bury the container at an angle with the lip of the jar just above soil level so that it is easier for the slimy creatures to enter the jar.
You don’t have to buy beer especially, as these pests are are attracted to the yeast smell of beer. It does not matter if the beer is flat. You can keep left over beer in a screw top jar in the fridge for topping up snail traps as required.
Use plastic containers, not glass, as glass can shatter in a hail storm, scattering shards and beer in all directions. Beer in soil is very detrimental to earthworms.
