That garlic is a powerful antibacterial is known. But scientists at the University of Newcastle in the Tyne have also discovered that garlic could be an ideal weapon to win the eternal war against snails and snails that make millions of dollars in damage to agriculture .
Molluscicide. Researchers who have discovered the molluscicidal action of garlic are not entirely sure what the target of the vegetable extract that kills snails is, but they think it can hit the nervous system of the creatures.
They applied the garlic extract to the soil, trying to find out how it affects the movement of snails and snails; the results were surprising, because garlic prevented damage to crops and killed a high percentage of animals. Garlic would then become an ecological pesticide, because obviously the garlic extract would be completely biodegradable.
