Snail farming is a very lucrative business with sure returns of investments but yet it is one of the neglected farming businesses in Nigeria. Snail farming provides a good opportunity to make money within a short period of time.

However, ignorance has prevented Nigerians from tapping into this second to none business where you can never go bankrupt. Snail farming is a big business; it provides opportunities to many farmers, sellers, middlemen, exporters etc.

Many people still believe that snail can only be hand-picked in the bush during the raining season, not knowing that it could be domesticated, reared and sold as a full time business.

Some have ventured into the business of Snail farming in the past but because of their lack or inadequate knowledge, they were unable to make headway in the business.

Snail farming is a great money making business, therefore, we have no reason to be wallowing in hunger and poverty in Nigeria.

Recently, people are rushing to farming in Nigeria but still they neglect this aspect of animal rearing which ironically happens to be the best form of farming that requires little start-up capital and effort but brings a great returns of investments.

I always encourage people that even if you have failed in all endeavours, try Snail farming and you will never regret doing so. Anybody who is interested in traveling abroad to search for green pasture should tarry a bit and venture into snail farming where the grass is greener.

Before we delve into the ways by which you can make money in Snail farming, you must first know why you must engage in snail farming by learning about the real reasons snail farmers never stop doing the business unlike fish farmers that normally stop after 2 or 3 years of business.

Commercial Snails in Nigeria

The most suitable and commercial Snail species for rearing in Nigeria are: Achatina Fulica, Achatina Achatina and the Archachatina Marginata but we normally recommend Achatina Marginata because of its market acceptability and high demand in Nigeria.

Real reasons you should start your snail farming now

a. Snail farming business is one of the easiest animal rearing businesses one can engage in. The business is not saturated yet. Engaging in it means you are helping to protect the extinction of the animal from the wild (forest).

d. Snail farming is not capital and management intensive, especially when compared to poultry and catfish farming. The feeds are readily available and you can even produce it yourself as snails feed on waste. You can start small from your backyard and grow from there.

e. Another interesting thing about rearing snails is that they are in high demand in places like hotels, restaurants, etc. Their feeding materials are cheap and locally available.

Edible snails are available all year round especially during raining season. The demand always surpasses supply in the rainy season, let alone in the dry season.

f. There is high potential for good returns; it is one of the most profitable investments one can think of. Because snails are hermaphrodites (having male and female organs), therefore they have the capacity to reproduce prolifically.

​Five Unattractive habits In Women that Scare Men Away

While you may be doing everything in your power to attract the opposite sex, it may surprise you to learn that some of your actions and behaviors can actually have the opposite effect.

In fact, you may not even realize that you’re acting in a wa that drives men away when all you’re really trying to do is draw them toward you. In order to take control of the situation and truly attract the right guys, avoid these 5 things and you’ll hopefully grab his attention rather than be left empty-handed.

Being a gossip

It might seem fun to share the latest rumours, scandals, and stories involving the lives of your friends, family, and co-workers with a guy, but it might surprise you to learn that being a gossip is a major turn off.

While your intentions may be to try to open the lines of communication with him and keep him in the loop, it’s important to recognize that giving him the lowdown on other’s sordid deeds actually makes you come across as having low self-esteem.

In fact, many people with a poor self-image rely on gossip as a way to make themselves feel better about their own lives, and they choose to talk about the latest failures and scandalous behaviours of others as a way to give themselves a boost.

If you’re looking to attract men, you should keep in mind that guys are drawn to women who are confident, value themselves, and don’t put others down as a way to lift themselves up.

Being excessively confident

While having high self-esteem is a quality that men find highly attractive in women, it’s important to understand that there’s a fine line between being confident and being conceited.

while you should definitely believe in yourself, be proud of your accomplishments, and be happy with what you have t offer, you should also keep in mind that showing off is a major turn off.

Specifically, research has shown that people who boast about themselves don’t even recognize the full extent of the negative response they receive from others, as discussed in Psychological Science.

Although you may assume that your self-proclaimed awesomeness is attracting men, having a huge ego, acting like a narcissist is actually a huge mistake. Alternatively, you should opt for humility and be secure enough in yourself that you don’t have to rely on arrogance to get a gent, as the right man won’t need you to constantly reinforce just how amazing you truly are — he’ll see it on his own.

Being needy

When it comes to attracting men, it’s important to recognize that men want to feel as though they’re needed. Specifically, men want to know that they add value to your life and that they’re not superfluous, expendable, or disposable.

However, many women mistakenly interpret a man’s desire to feel needed by becoming overly needy, jealous, and desperate to spend every waking moment with him — all of which are anything but appealing behaviours to guys. So if you’re someone who tends to become clingy and emotionally dependent on a man because you think it’ll bring him closer and inspire him to stick around, know that you’re actually just pushing him away.

Moreover, men want to know that they complement your life as opposed to being the center of your universe on which your entire happiness level and sense of self-worth depend. Fortunately, there are steps you can take right now to break your cycle of neediness when it comes to men, such as putting an end to negative self-talk, getting out of your comfort zone, and learning how to resolve issues on your own.

Wearing a ton of makeup

You may think that loading up on foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, and blush (to name a few) makes you look most attractive, but it may surprise you to learn that piling on the makeup is not appealing to guys.

In fact, a study in The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology revealed that women tend to overestimate the amount of makeup that men find attractive, and as a result, many women end up applying way too much. In other words, you may choose to wear a lot of makeup because you think it draws men toward you, but in reality, it’s actually warding them off.

With this in mind, it’s time to face the fact (so to speak) that less is truly more when it comes to makeup’s role in attraction, and it’s in your best interest to opt for a natural look as opposed to caking it on for the guy you’re sweet on.

Playing hard to get

While it’s true that men are drawn to women who are outgoing and assertive individuals, it’s important to recognize that there’s a fine line between being independent and being unavailable.

You may think that playing hard to get and acting in a distant and disengaged way can help you attract a guy, but you’re making a mistake by not making time for him. In fact, playing games can make you seem highly immature and can give off the impression that you’re not yet ready, willing, and/or interested in getting to know him on a deeper and more meaningful level.

while you may assume that acting detached and aloof increases your allure, you’re actually coming across as uninterested, flaky, and just plain annoying. Playing hard to get is an easy way to strike out with a guy.
