OK... here's two tried and true solutions for those plant mangling slugs that plague our ever moist garden areas: Beer and Egg shells.
Yep, not kidding. All winter long I saved and crushed our egg shells. Family laughed at my bowl full but it didn't bother me. Have you any idea how long it takes to get a decent gladware square full of crushed eggshell?? A Long Time!
any how, this spring went out and sprinkled these all around my plants that got eaten alive last summer - my big girl hostas, and more. (Wish I could remember all the plant names!). Well the happy news - it's working! Every plant I circled is doing very well with no slug bites!
An old friend used to do the beer traps too. Again - those little slugs are lushes! They love beer. Fall in the sunken jar trap and drown - happily I might add.
Both of these methods are confirmed on this great resource page:http://www.eartheasy.com/grow_nat_slug_cntrl.htm
They even have some more suggestions that are all natural. So I just had to share.
And yes.... we had a scrambled egg dish for brunch today and I've already started a new container for crushin' :)
