How do you remove snails from plants?

    • Best Answer

    I tend to dip the plants a few times in vinegar and a light copper solution (as copper kills snails and most invertebrates). Then I rinse them throughly in water to make sure the copper treatment is gone so it’s safe for my tanks that do have invertebrates and snails (the ones that I do want that is).

  • Dipping the plants in bleach solution will kill snails. Then rinse well under tap water for atleast 5 mins.

  • I manually remove the snails. I also dip the plants in a mixture of bleach, hydrogen peroxide and alum to prevent any snails from growing on it.
