It's terrible because our backyard garden is being attacked relentlessly by slugs. There are so many baby slugs so obviously the mother slugs are giving birth and using our plants for nursery food. In one checking, we get more than 30 slugs, of all sizes. But in the afternoon, there are the slugs again. Yesterday we sprayed insecticide all over the place but this morning the slugs are again here. It seems that our only defense is to collect the slugs and convert it to fertilizer.

Slugs are quite nasty pests because they destroy and soil vegetables by leaving a slimy trail on the leaves of plants inhibiting normal physiological activities. Slugs are beer lovers. You should scoop a hole in the ground and place some alcohol in a container. The slugs will be attracted to the alcohol and drown in the process.

@remnant That is a good bit to know about using beer to drown the slugs! This will come in handy for me :)
