Challenge 2: All about Slugs!! (29/04/2016)

@ Spanish speakers, please let me know what you think :-)

Los caracoles y babosas esconden bajo esa apariencia insignificante un hambre voraz, convirtiéndolos en una plaga muy molesta que puede llegar a destrozar una planta en pocas horas.
Se benefician de lugares húmedos y oscuros, y su objetivo predilecto son las plantas jóvenes y tiernas. Existen una gran variedad de animales depredadores como escarabajos, serpientes, sapos... que se alimentan de ellos.
Si los caracoles invaden tus plantas aconsejamos quitarlos uno a uno con la mano, será mucho más natural que cualquier otra opción. Sin embargo, muchas veces ésto no es suficiente y por eso os enseñamos algunos trucos muy efectivos.
Nuestra amiga Gabriela, lectora del canal de Plantas en Facebook, nos ha dado un truco muy bueno para combatir caracoles y babosas. La utilización de sal alrededor de macetas y planteros o, si las plantas están sobre tierra, cavar una zanja y colocar un plástico con sal en su interior, evitando que la sal entre en contacto con la tierra. Estos moluscos son muy sensibles a la deshidratación así que la sal actuará de forma efectiva.

Excellent, Juan! Thanks so much for reading it out. It really helps listening to a native speaker. I have decided that I am going to listen to your reading each day, (so I can learn how to better pronounce words and improve my accent, pronunciation and intonation) and read it out again next week on lingora. Hopefully I will improve :-) Thanks once again for helping me out ;)
