|A few minutes later. Didn't take long for them to just crawl right back out. Barf barf. Just what you want to be looking at, right?|
|A couple hours later. A different slug taking a drink over the side. The big slug that you see that drowned was the result of me accidently knocking it off the lid.|
|Clearly my experiment did not work. So, perhaps putting dirt in the box to make the soil level flush with the level of my containers will work as many sources recommend doing. Doubt it will have any effect, but its worth it to give it a shot.|
|Alive and well. Nearly two full days later.|
|Notice just how much beer the slugs drank. The cans were full to the brim 2 days prior.|
|The lid of my box. Slugs have crawled well away from the beer traps.|
An interesting side note, I looked through Steve Solomon's books again for additional slug information and he mentioned that the Great Grey slug as most detrimental to crops, which is easy to identify. And remember, the Banana slug is actually a beneficial insect.
