I found this website, Gardening Know How, that has lots of good information on slugs. One thing the site recommended was a cup of beer! Who knew slugs like to drink?
I put a small cup of beer in each container. The idea is they climb in for a drink and drown because they can't get back out.
One slug was brave enough to be in the yard that day, so I tested it out on him. Sure enough he went for it, in broad daylight!
We were away for the weekend, but when I got home and checked the pots, I had a total of 6 slugs. I like to think they went happily....drunk on beer.
Any pesky critters disrupting your garden this summer?
