Bombarding slugs with traps... day 2

This is part of my War on Slugs experiments.

See: bombarding slugs with traps day 1 for the story on this experiment.

This is the result of bombarding my slug infested bean garden with as many boards and tiles that I could find. I found upwards of a dozen slugs trapped.

The drawback: this is awfully laborious and my time might be better spent using iron phosphate. But that's another experiment I'll be working on down the road!

For a list of all of my slug control experiments, please see this page.

For now it will be labor intensive but if you eventually get all or most of them it shouldn't be so bad. Maybe?
