Re: Slugs

Ronnie: I use this beer recipe for slugs in hostas: One half can in saucer,
one half can in me, etc., etc. It's also useful for making beer beans, a
favorite when grilling on the deck or camping. Half a can of beer in the
beans, stir well, half a can for me, add another half can to the beans, etc.
All fun aside, the beer really does work with slugs.
