Then crush the shells so that they have a not too sandy consistency and sprinkle these small pieces on your vegetable garden. Slugs and snails do not like to crawl on sharp objects, so they will no longer be able to feast on your plants.

In addition, the calcium contained in eggshells can positively affect the health and condition of your crops.
