<p>I will definitely try this! It's a lot of work in So Cal keeping the snails off my parsley &amp; other herbs! Thanks!</p>
Great! I have Aloe &amp; problems with snails. I'll be test.
&nbsp;Great instructable, I have both snails and aloe vera&nbsp;already&nbsp;
very impressive! and it actually works!! <br />
how did you come up with this?
I was bored one day when I saw the contest and I said I have to win that composter for my gram.&nbsp; So i looked around the patio for inspiration and I stumbled upon a few plants with aphids and snail and slug problems and i ran to get the spray.&nbsp; I started feeling bad about the environment like always and looked toward the aloe vera.&nbsp; I noticed 1) that there were no aphids on it 2) never have I seen it eaten by slugs or snails and 3) aloe vera is great for lots of uses. I dont think anyone has ever noticed this before and this could be a new discovery upon old things.&nbsp; I remember getting cuts and having my gram put the slimy stuff on my cuts.&nbsp; I basically grew up with the idea. *NOTE* Aloe vera is only for minor lacerations.<br />
Excellent presentation. Just the kind of solution I was looking for to solve my slug and snail problem. BTW, Aloe is great to put on a burn. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
So where were you when the slugs were eating my fourth try at melons and squash? I'm gona have to try this. Thanks
please tell all your friends and next time ill post stuff faster then when i discover them please vote for me and tell your friends!
I did go on a tour of an aloe vera farm in China, and they served us (tourist) fresh cut aloe vera. It was slimey and gross. I just hope it wasn't poisonous, according to one of the comments left here. Thanks for your Instructable. I will definitely give this a try.
its safe but just make sure you wash your plant before you eat them to get rid of bacteria that naturally occurs on plants and if you eat it just like that it wont taste as good.
thanks for leaving posotive comment and you will see more ingenious inventions from the legendary yofortune!!!
IT is perfectly safe to eat the plant that you spray this stuff on just make sure you wash them (you probably do any way)so you can wash off the spray and the other germs on it just incase.thank you vote for me!!!
try taking it too...<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://wholesalesupplementstore.com/naturesway-aloevera-100caps.html?productid=naturesway-aloevera-100caps&amp;channelid=FROOG">http://wholesalesupplementstore.com/naturesway-aloevera-100caps.html?productid=naturesway-aloevera-100caps&amp;channelid=FROOG</a><br/><br/>thats my brand of choice, though others might be better, thats what I've always purchased from Whole Foods. <br/><br/>Amazing results.<br/>
Just don't drink aloe juice pressed from your own plants... commercial food grade aloe has the anthraquinone (poisonous substance, probably the stuff snails don't like) removed.
Aloe Vera repels snails? I didn't realize that. Does it repel slugs too?
yeah ive put raw alovera meat on a rock near my habenaros and they havent eaten any leaves on it for weeks.
It repels all bugs actually nothing ever eat my aloe vera
I have used Aloe Vera for hair maintenance during years, with good results
You've never one anything? Have you two anything? What about three?
