My composters, I have 2 beehive types, seem to be slug nurseries. So, every evening I check the outer walls of the composters for slugs heading out to the yard. I scoop them up with an old spoon and drop them into my 'Pot of Death', half filled with water, a handful of Epsom Salts, and a squirt of dish detergent. Instant death. A satisfying way to end the day!

I have done some raised bed gardens this year and found that a 1/2 inch wide strip of copper all the way around keeps slugs and snails out of my raised beds.

I didn't see the slugs on the board. I wanted to see the slugs on the board.
