Re: Sluggo

dear paul,

before i started using sluggo, i did just what you describe, but i found the 
job much easier if i put bits of lettuce on top of the medium in pots or at 
the base of plants in the ground.  the slugs and snails seem to prefer it to 
the aroids.  so i'd go out at night with a bucket of soapy water and simply 
drop the slugs/snails, lettuce and all into it.  i hope this helps simplify 
your task.  the soap kills them too, so there's really no need for bleach 
unless you just like to see them die quickly and mercifully.  i kinda like 
the idea of slow death myself.


<< Well down here in Miami the snails are almost unstoppable...or so they 
 thought. Anyways we have perfected the hand pick method and the numbers have 
 dropped since last year. Basically the most effective thing is to go out 
 around 10 after a good rain with a wide mouth jug of some sort and a high 
 powered flashlight. Then when you've had enough go inside and put a little 
 bleach inside, cap the top and put somewhere out of the house. Even though 
 this may be time consuming or old fashioned but to me is the most effective. 
 If you dont want to collect bring a salt shaker along. The snails will love
