I've used Sluggo, an organic product you can buy at any of the stores here locally. Last week I was at Pierson's and they actually let me try Sluggo Plus for free--I've yet to come to any conclusion on that one. I've been reading about putting out a butter dish of beer. Apparently they will crawl into it and drink till they are a problem no more. Did the penny trick really work?

Hi Alicia,
I'll check on that one called Sluggo. Sounds like the product is organic but maybe still kills the slugs? That's another problem for me. I used to use the beer one...only put it in jar covers on the ground. They do crawl in and then die. These days I try not to kill critters. Just discourage them. Yes, the penny trick did work pretty well. But I had to keep going around to unearth some of the pennies now and then that got partially buried from the rain showers. Our weather lately doesn't appeal much to getting out there in the garden. Come on sunshine!
Thanks for stopping by!
