Tom has been really frustrated lately. It appears that our wonderful lettuce crop has been partially decimated by slugs. Ewwwww! I really hate slugs!
I went in search of non-chemical ways to attract slugs and stop them from making a pilgrimage through our garden...again. It seems that the most common ideas included sharing a beer with them. Well, I don't know about you, but we don't have beer in the house that often and when we do, I don't really care to share it with a slug!
Thinking about beer, I figured that the "yeasty" smell was probably what was appealing to our slimy intruders. So I thought I'd make my own slug bait. (I'm sure I'm not the only one who has come to this conclusion, but just in case...)
