Organic Slug Control with Snakes!

Jacqueline Freeman of Friendly Haven Rise Farm (http://friendlyhaven.com) in Battleground, Washington shows off her rock piles which she uses for snake habitat. And she reports far fewer slugs in her gardens because of it. ""These rockpiles enticed snakes which have reduced our slug problem by at least 95%""

Rick Valley of Lost Valley Educational Center (http://www.lostvalley.org) in Dexter, Oregon talks about different kinds of snakes and whether their taste for slugs is genetic. Rick also talks about his favorite types of snake habitat: compost piles.
