  • Hi Kris, have you tried copper tape around your garden area?

    You can sprinkle crushed eggshells around the base of the plants or use slug bait, which also works very well. You can also try spraying with the 40 parts water to one part liquid soap for 10 -15 minutes and then hose off again.

    Egg shells work for me. I also hand remove them. In the past when over number by the little guys I've set out tuna cans with beer. Put them in at ground level. A semi humane way to rid your garden of drunken slugs.
