Say hello to my little friend...
This is just one of many. I have radioactive slugs in my garden and they are enjoying dinner thanks to my hops. Last night, I discovered some of these bad boys on the leaves of my hops plants and a few others in the garden. My goal at work today was to find out a way to control these bad boys.
There are a few things you can do to control slugs, but I prefer the good ol' method of using salt. I placed 5 small dishes in my garden this evening and poured some beer in each. Not my homebrew, just some BMC I had laying around.
It just got dark here and I decided to check on my dishes. To my amazement, they must love Miller. I had slugs all around each of the dishes in the garden. Armed with my salt shaker, I quickly dispatched all the slugs in sight. I kinda felt bad, but I love my plants more than my slugs.
Just wanted to put a post out there letting you all know that if you have a slug problem, just use beer to bring them in and then let them have it with the salt shaker. I'll be out there later tonight for another mass murder!
