Did you know that you can use beer, (any type even the cheap stuff), to get rid of slugs and snails from your flowers and garden?
Place a small dish or jar with enough beer to cover the bottom well and set it on the ground near your troubled area.
The slugs will go in and drink it up…much to their demise. Don’t worry, they die happy and it is a lot less messy, you just pick up the dish and toss it. I use a plastic dish so I can toss the whole thing.
Give it a try.
