Hey everyone, today Ed from Everyday Living in the Pacific Northwest is here today to share a tip just in time for Spring....
Natural Garden Slug Control
Seriously, I just counted 8 slugs that we caught in our simple trap and it is all natural! It can be done in 4 simple steps.
- Eat some tuna. Depending on the size of your garden, two or three cans are needed.
- Wait! Don’t throw out the tuna cans, just clean them out.
- Place empty cans in garden.
- Buy beer, drink some beer, then pour some of said beer into the tuna cans.
All done, now you just sit and wait. The slugs like the beer (cause who doesn’t) so they go for it, fall in the can a drown. Easy as that. No mess, no worries about chemicals. Just replace the beer with fresh stuff now and again and your golden. SO far it has been extremely effective in our garden. Mel’s dahlia went from being half consumed to looking great only after a couple of weeks.
