The slugs here in the Pacific Northwest are ferocious! If you haven't heard my story of how I collected over 200 in one evening last summer then I'll spare you the disgusting details. Especially the part where I left them in the coffee can on the front porch the next day in the sun.
Anyway, I fight slugs. I've not done too much up until now (except the incident mentioned above). But I'm determined to have a full garden this year so I'm off to slug war.
Beer and small containers.
We take the containers out and dig a little into the ground so they are flush with the ground. Buy the cheapest beer possible! Fill the container.
Watch the slugs come from miles around. They can't resist!
I found about 40 slugs total in my 7 traps the first morning.
I changed the fullest ones the next night but left the others. I got a bunch more in the 2 traps I changed out but didn't count. The others need to be changed. I don't think the slugs are out full force yet, I expect this is just the beginning of the battle!
More gardening update soon.
