What to use: as
the weather gets colder I suspect slugs will not feed as much and slug
egg cant eat---this may negate the use of slug bait. Possible slugacides---soil
drench sprays of ammonia ,vinegar ,borax. I will use a localized application
of cygon in all hot spots.
Going by Eleanor Holt's message from Tuesday I would be leary of using
the borax. I'm thinking of trying an ammonia solution in the next week
or so to see how that works. Next year I'm going to try to remember to
use the ammonia solution on a regular basis. It's supposed to work great
for those nasty, slimy creatures. One of Van Wade's employees swears by
the ammonia solution. It works wonders for her in her garden.
Just a thought from a rookie.

P.S. I saw you (and your garden) on The Gardener's Journal last Saturday.
You have a BEAUTIFUL garden!!!!!!! I can only hope to some day have
a garden as nice as yours and others I have seen pics of on Hostapix.
