Guaranteed Slug Killer
« on: 07 Jun 2013 08:37AM »
1/2 pint boiling water in very large jug or bucket.
Add 1 tablespoon of honey (or you could use sugar)
Mix together until honey has melted.
Add 1 pint cold water, stir.
Add 2 level tablespoons Allinson Dried Active Yeast, whisk until disolved. Whisking is much more efficient than stirring.

Sink containers into the earth - these containers need to be shallow enough for the slugs to climb in, but deep enough for the slugs not to get out.

Add 1" of mixture.

Go out at about 10pm and you will find loads of slugs heading towards the mixture - if not already in it.  Dispose of slugs accordingly.

Next morning there will be lots of slugs in there too.

Dispose of accordingly.

This really works as I tried it out last night.

I'm may try a garlic recipe next time to see how that works as slugs apparently do not like garlic - but I am not keen on my garden smelling of garlic.

A colt 45 but your aim needs to be good if your aim is not so good then a shotgun will do just fine.
Be careful in what you wish for, God has a sense of humour

For a short while, years ago, my older brothers had an air rifle.

Slugs didn't stand a chance.

I am 'Slugsta' on a running forum (no longer able to run but have some very good friends there) and also on a couple of cruise fora.
 
I hope that we soon have a happy, well AO.
