5 Quick and Easy Ways to Keep Slugs Out

Slugs are not so easy to get rid of but here are some tips that can help you out.

-Put a copper strip around the edge of your garden bed. Slugs don’t like to crawl on copper, so this will help keep them out.

-Create a border using diatomaceous earth. This natural substance is deadly to slugs, and it’s easy to use. Just sprinkle it around the edges of your garden beds and walkways.

-Set up some slug traps. There are lots of different types of slug traps available, but most of them work by attracting slugs with beer or sugar water. Once they’re in the trap, they can’t get out!

-Install a fence around your garden bed. This is probably the best way to keep slugs out completely since they won’t be able to get past the fence.

-Make your own slug trap with household ingredients you probably already have! To make a simple sugar solution, mix together one part molasses and four parts water in a bowl or jar. Then place it on its side near your garden beds – slugs will climb in but won’t be able to escape!
