- Dec 3, 2007You're welcome. I don't know if I mentioned the spacing of the traps. I cant say what is optimal but I put them every 15 feet or so.

That was so well-explained. Thank you! We have a lot of trouble with slugs
around here, which is southwestern Oklahoma. The odd thing is that it can get
so, so hot and dry, especially in the summers, and yet we'll have problems
with slugs. I only use plants that are fairly drought resistant, because we
have to ration water sometimes. And still, the slugs will be a problem. They
must be little creatures.
I think the idea of killing them with beer is a really good one, even mock
beer. Somehow it seems more humane than most other ways I've heard of.
Probably the most humane way would be to quickly smash them with a shoe or
something, but I can't deal with those sluggy guts. Bleecchhh.
