Slug trap

slug trap

Slugs are a jolly old nuisance. I have often sprinkled around the garden lots of Quash Slug and Snail bait, but with limited success.  It is a pet and wildlife friendly product but it does break down in rain or irrigation.  Baysol is the only one that doesn’t break down in rain but is a lot more expensive.  I recently tried one of these snail traps that you fill with beer.  The first time I tried it, it was full of slaters which don’t do any harm in the garden, but when I emptied it, I discovered the bottom had a lot of slugs in it.  I filled it again with beer (such a waste of beer according to my husband) and this time you can see for yourself in the photo, it is full of slugs.  I am very pleased with the result.  I hope it continues to be so successful.  It hasn’t attracted any snails though!  Maybe there aren’t any.

    Dear writer I have read your article and I would like to suggest a new device against slugs, it is called the Slugbell and it uses Organic or normal Metaldehyde bug pellets and the small amount of pellets will last up to three months as they don’t dissolve in the soil. The Slugbell is completely Safe for Pets, Children and Environment. You can have a look to the website
