During the mating season, it is important that the shelves have containers with peat, where snails will bury themselves to lay eggs. These containers can be, for example, transparent pots for cherries. They should be filled with a mixture of peat, washed sand and food chalk at 8-10 cm deep: at a ratio of 60/30/10%.
It should be understood that sand and chalk are of no direct use, but they are allowed to dilute peat to save money. You can use Odessa, Polissya or Lutsk deep peat. The packaging with peat must indicate that it is disinfected. This is important because the bulk of salmonella (worms) enters the snail from the ground or peat. Because of these parasites, a mass plague of snails may begin in the future.
