SLUG PATROL

-

I’m very lucky to share my garden with a few Indian runner ducks who act as “slug patrol” and keep numbers down. If you don’t have any ducks (or chickens) to help, then it’s a good idea to get on top of your slug population now. Place empty grapefruit skins upside down on the soil where the slugs can feed at night and shelter during the day. Check in the morning and dispose of any hiding inside. Catch ’em early.
