* * * Slugs!!! * * *
This morning's slug count: 26 from 4 dishes of beer. I hate to kill the little suckers, but they are destroying my dahlias!!!! Today my neighbor gave me some Ortho slug bait to try. There are so many more than I thought...I wonder if I'll ever be rid of them or atleast control the damage. I also felt like a voodoo woman last night as I sprinkled circles of coarse salt around each plant. Thought I would try it once, not sure if it worked or even if it was wise to do (might not be good for the plants), but I did find one dead slug caught crossing the line. Any ideas on slug warfare? Thanks!
