Hi everyone, I really hope your growing season is going well for you all !

just a quick update that I still have another 3 Slug Trap fill up’s ( top up’s ) to go from my 12 can cheap beer pack I bought for Organic Slug Control / Traps. I have stopped counting the slugs if you remember in post #1 I trapped 20+ Slugs and the number boomed to 60+ in the second round of trapping the following week!

I literally had to stop counting as I’m sure the number increased a load the following week or two, I can now confirm that the number of slugs or snails trapped are diminishing and that can only be good news! The Cull is almost over (I intended to stagger my slug trap refilling by trapping one week on and one week off To give time for new babies to hatch in between).

It has been dry lately so a new tip I came up with is to shower the area around the traps at night so that incase of dry spells the little buggers will have moist surface to slime across gleefully on the one way trip to the slug pub …

Later on in the year,perhaps closer to Autumn I intend to make a final post with my opinion and observation/s regarding this method and the tactic’s I employed, lets observe over summer if I can notice a difference in the damage caused once everything is planted outside, keep an eye out on this blog in the future …
