A Snail Tale
A Snail with a Tale. This is the story of a pest who lives in the garden. He uses his radula or tongue to rip leaves apart so he can eat them. These little mollusks are common garden pests but they're kind of cute too. Just take a peek at Steve one of the snails living out in my yard. These little guys carry their homes around on their backs and are thought to be lazy but imagine if you had to carry your home around with you :) not a minor task. If you want to read more, check this link out.
How 'bout you - any pests you have around your house that you think are kind of cute? Or am I the only one who doesn't like to kill the little creeping, crawling, critters?
