No one likes a slug hanging around. Sure, they may be a little (just a little) cute and intriguing. But, whether they’re crawling around the Capitol or the garden, these critters are a nuisance.

Elizabeth McGregor at Preppers Will wrote up four easy ways to trap or terminate garden slugs. Have a read. And none of these ways involves salt.

Slugs in the garden means crops slowly nibbled down. One can stand around a spot them and remove them by hand – a slow and slimey method. Or, for better results, try one of the following:

 

One. Use Food Waste.

 

Place a pile of leftovers by the garden and slugs will be drawn to it …. Like slugs to garbage…

 

Simply pick them out and dispose. Or use a little salt…

 

Two. Carboard.

 

Place some damp cardboard in the garden. Turn it over after a day or two and find the resident slugs. Do what you will with them.

 

Three. Crushed Eggshells.

 

This is a specific example of number one. Slugs are drawn to the shells, For them, it’s both food and a hiding spot. Place, inspect, and remove.

 

Four. Beer.

 

Place a little beer in a dish by the plants. The slugs have a sip, get drunk, fall in and drown.

Use a small amount of suds and drink the rest – so as not to feel wasteful.

These are great tips. Please read Elizabeth’s original for more on the tiny, slithering menace. I am not so confident these methods will work on slugs of the political variety. The beer maybe.
