    Place an old shallow container such as a pie plate about 3 foot away from the cabbage plants, and fi it with beer. The slugs jump in, get drunk and drown! Another way, save egg shells. Sprinkle a barrier abound he plants. The slugs will not cross as they will be cut.

    Halve citrus fruits, squeeze juice but leave the pulp. Lay them cut side down, leave overnight. Come morning, flip them over and dispose of the slimey suckers! Repeat. 😊

    Put a cup of beer out and then check it in the morning. You should see them in the beer. Keep changing it out every night for a week. That should take care of them. You can also sprinkle egg shells around the cabbage heads. They don't like them.
