Question from Joy

I am wondering if you have any recommendations on how I might kill garden slugs naturally rather than using the pellets or other chemical options sold at stores. I have seen a couple of natural products online, but am not sure how well they work or if I might be able to make something at home that works just as well? Thank you.


Debra’s Answer

I used to live in Inverness, California, where we had giant banana slugs.

I kid you not, my neighbors used to just pick them up and saute them in butter and garlic and eat them (a local food!).

I would set out pie plates filled half-full with beer in the evening. That seemed to work.

Readers, your suggestions?
