Lutter contre la limace horticole

Your leaves are holed on all sides, your transplanted plants are shaved and your seedlings are devastated, do not look for too long, the slugs and snails have passed by. Slugs can quickly become the nightmare of any gardener who respects each other. This small viscous animal does not represent the slightest danger to man, but it can cause ravages in your vegetable garden!To see it, it is enough of a wet and cool night between 15° and 18°C to see the pests of young shoots appear everywhere. And in the spring with the plants that start their vegetation, the snails and snails give themselves to joy.

Alt'o Slugs, natural anti-slug solution

ALT'O slugs is a solution for fight against damage caused by slugs and snails. It offers an effective and sustainable mechanical barrier consisting of pouzzolane, a volcanic rock that has the peculiarity of having very ridges sharp. Once this pouzzolane is spread around the plants you want to protect, snails and slugs will be very difficult to reach them.

Just like the egg shell (but in less sustainable), the effectiveness of the pouzzolane is related to sharpness. The slug will not move on volcanic rock, as it will hurt, its skin being extremely thin and fragile. It is probably one of the most natural, cheapest and most effective anti-lima repellants that exist.

But its use is multiple since these lava granules are also used to drain, lighten and remineralize the soil.

Of volcanic origin, lava granules contain all the minerals necessary for plants and especially silica, but also magnesium, calcium, aluminium, iron.. They facilitate plant rooting and ease soil by improving drainage.

These pouzzolan granules are not toxic to domestic animals, herds or any other animal in the garden.

Effective for several weeks and resistant to heavy rain, it naturally pushes the attacks of slugs and snails.

You can use ALT’O Slugs for your vegetable garden, orchard, ornamental garden, as well as potted plants.

Against snails and snails : Eliminate already present slugs, weeds, leaves and other dirt around plants. Spread around the plant a strip of at least 5 cm wide and about 1 cm thick ALT’O Slugs. 1 kg of granules will allow you to trace a barrier of about 6 linear meters. Make sure the circle is still closed. If necessary, add some granules to close it. After harvest, granules can be incorporated as an amendment into the soil.

Drainage : Place a layer of pouzzolane at the bottom of the pot and mix the pouzzolane to the ground or to the soil. 2 to 4 cm thick. Drainage incorporated into the earth: 10% in volume. Paillis: 2 to 4 cm thick (20 to 40 L/m2).

In mulch : Distribute the chicken at the foot of the plants.

To complement the struggle

Over time, gardeners have tested a multitude of natural remedies to fight slugs (egg shells, ash, wood sawdust, water+ garlic spray, coffee marc). Systematicly, it consists of keeping them remotely or relying on the fact that the rampants hardly appreciate moving on rough and dry surfaces. Indeed, they dehydrate their mucus coats on which they move. But most do not offer a sufficiently durable solution. We therefore need to renew the technique regularly because the slug is not waiting for you. From the moment when there is an entrance door to go to eat, they fade ! The volcanic rock type pouzzolane has the particularity of being inert and having a very long life and a resistance to rain. This places it in the best repulsive barriers against ramps like slugs.

Otherwise, another very effective method: Welcome the natural enemies of the slugs. The most important are not hedgehogs, cranes or toads, at random and seasonal presence, but insects: carabes, staphylins odorants, to shiners, thousand-pats.. And of course, chickens! They'll be happy to please you !


Zoom on the pouzzolane, eruptive rock 100% natural

Constituted by volcanic slags, i.e. basaltic volcanic projections, pouzzolane has a scoriaceous and alveolar texture. Its colour is usually reddish (from red light to dark brown).

Often used in landscape work, the pouzzolane limits the irrigation and development of adventitous plants. This red to black colored rock, passing through grey, is also used in horticulture as a pure substrate or mixture. There are different sizes of pouzzolane according to usage (water filter, lining of icy roads, refractory concretes. ).

Pozzolane is a very porous material that promotes drainage. It can therefore be associated to 75% height with materials such as peat or coconut fibre.

Pozzolane has excellent physical and chemical stability, which gives it great durability. It does not degrade (no cupping, is not friable) and does not react with the nutrient solution. It is an inert substrate with a neutral to slightly acidic ph.
