Look at these poor Brussels Sprouts, victims of the hungry slug.  Let’s make a an old fashioned slug trap!

Step 1: Recycle an old cat food tin or small container from your cupboard or medicine cabinet.

Step 2: Grab a beer.  Most people use bad or cheap stale beer but no harm in giving a slug a good buzz either.

Step 3: Bury or Embed the tin into the dirt.  Try to have the top of the container on the same level as the dirt so your slugs can scoot in with ease.

Step 4: Fill ‘er up!

Step 5: Leave it alone a wait a day or two-when you return there will be a NUMBER of slugs that stopped by for a little beer but drowned in their desire.  A few rounds of this pest control and your organic plants will be back in the business of growing.
