how can i stop snails getting into my pear tree

United Kingdom Gb

small snails with brown and white shells get into my trees andattack the fruit making it rot



Your Pear has fruit already?!?!?! This won't help with the snails already on the tree but if you secure a band of materiel at least 4" wide around the trunk and then spread Vaseline over it evenly you will have created a barrier that snails won't pass. Good Luck!
