    Default slugs

    Since we had such a wet summer last year, what is the recommened method to get rid of any unhatched eggs? I would like to do something about them before getting the garden ready this spring.

    I don't know about preventing them, but sprinkling wood ash around the plants they attack will keep them away.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Beer in a plastic can lid will get them after the hatch.

    Don't know about prevention, but... little saucers containing beer work very well if they strike again.

    Here's one method. We use jar lids. Skip the yeast.

    More tips - I have no idea whether these other ideas work or not:

    Good luck.

    fence in the garden and add a second fence 3-4 foot farther out and let the chicken loose in the two fences the slugs will not make it in the garden, keep hopper out too then you have the eggs and meat to eat.
