A Guillotine on a Stick That Lets You Play Caesar With Slugs

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If you're tired of your local snail and slug population undoing all the hard work you've put into your garden, there's finally a tool that lets you choose between getting rid of them humanely, or turning them into ironic compost to help your flowers and vegetables succeed.

There's no doubt that Unikia's Snail Pick and Cut means business. Without having to bend over, its long handle lets you snatch snails, slugs, and other slow-moving pests from your garden. And then it's up to you to decide their fate. Do you give them the thumbs up and simply transplant them to another part of your garden? Or do you give them the thumbs down and slice them in two with the tool's trigger-activated guillotine blade?

Whatever you choose, the €24.95 (£20.20) Snail Pick and Cut will certainly help you maintain your garden and protect it from parasites. Or, if you think the whole process is a little cruel, it looks like it might also be a handy tool for picking and slicing strawberries straight from the plant. It's nice to have options. [Unikia]
