Get Your Slugs Drunk



When slugs become a problem, I place a few plates filled with beer in my garden, natural area, and/or bushes. The next morning, the plates are full of engorged slugs. I just toss the plates in a bag and throw it in the garbage. I'm assuming the slugs died happy. A tip from my Terminex guy.

  • My home is very near forest and when I first moved in, I used aluminum pie tins to set out the beer in. The next morning, they looked like slug slime pies. My friend claimed it was a waste of good beer, but got sick when he caught is labrador lapping up the pies. - by NEDERLUNG
  • Thanks for the chuckle. Now I know, to kill slugs, just get them drunk. I wonder if it works on other bugs. - by NANAPATTYB
