Garden Super Hero

For all of you who continually battle slugs and snails there is hope (on the West Coast anyway). The slim, trim Snail-Killer Carabid (Scaphinotus angusticollis) is especially adapted to get right in snail shells to dispatch the snail and it also eats banana slugs. Quite a nice looking beetle with it’s reddish coloured stream lined body.
