Re: Fw: Cool Slugs


Hi everybody. The FIRST LOOK pest control team has just sent me this alert
after having seen the SEA SLUG post from Cindy Johnson:

Oddly enough the team was just going to post something on this themselves
when Cindy brought it to everyone's attention!

Here's what the FL Pest Control Team sent:

        !!!!!WARNING!!!!!   !!!!!!!!! TO ALL COASTAL AREAS  !!!!!!!!!!!

The USDA has announced that growing populations of sea slugs are expected to
be a MAJOR problem in all coastal areas.  They are expected to move onto land
from the oceans in search of new food sources and hostas are expected to be
at the top of their list of preferred foods.

Gardeners are warned not to hand pick because of the prickly "things" on
their backs. Even though these creatures appear exotic and one might think
them tastier than escargot...you are warned NOT to harvest them for the
appetizer portion of  your up-coming dinner party!

Also known as "the punk rock slugs" these can also be identified by their
overuse of hairspray, hair dye, tattoos and body piercings.  If you see one
in your garden, DO NOT TOUCH IT!  Immediately go to the nearest computer and
post your sighting to the hosta robins for further tracking of their
disgusting habits!

Attached is a photo of the first known sea slug to have been sighted on land.

Brought to you as a public service announcement............
