Slugs in the Garden

Slug is a common name for any gastropod mollusc that lacks a shell, that has a very reduced shell, or has a small internal shell. This is in contrast to the common name snail, applied to gastropods that have a coiled shell large enough that the soft parts of the animal can retract fully into it.

Slugs are a formidable foe in the garden.

How to Get Rid of Garden Slugs:

- Put 2 tablespoons of cornmeal in a jar and lay it on its side wherever there is slug activity.

- Fill a cup 80% full of beer at ground level.

- Spread salt on the surface where the slugs crawl around and they will dry up. Do not put salt in the soil because it will ruin the soil for plants.

- use sand around the plants
