There began my battle with slugs and again this fall I am noticing the presence of slugs in my garden. I have tried many of the suggested treatments for slugs and have come down to a couple of control methods that work well for me.
1. Do Not Provide Cover/Habitat - remove plant debris and keep mulch about 4 inches away from the stems of your plants
2. Remove and Squish - look in moist cool locations to find the slugs hiding during the day or hunt them out in early morning/late evening.
3. Slug Bait (family & pet safe) - It is not always easy to find child/pet safe slug bait. I usually order from mail order catalogs.
4. Spray With Ammonia - ammonia (NH3) will kill the slugs & leave behind nitrogen in your garden. A win win in my book!
What is your favorite slug control method?
Happy Gardening (& pest control)!!! :)
