Get Your Slugs Drunk


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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.

    Thanks for the chuckle. Now I know, to kill slugs, just get them drunk. I wonder if it works on other bugs.

    Wow! That's great that the Terminex guy was willing to give that tip. I really can't wait to try this out this weekend.

    That is SOOO FUNNY! I did not know slugs like beer. I'm going to drown those little suckers. Thanks!
