Caffeine against slugs is in June 27 issue

Sorry, I had coupla issues lying on my desk. "Caffeine as a Repellent for
Slugs and Snails"  is on page 915 of the June 27 issue. Turns out even a
low percentage in a spray is effective because its extremely water soluble
and quickly taken up through the mucus and into the bodies of the beasties.
