Use the beer method. But not just any beer. It's got to be a really hoppy beer like a British or Irish brand. Guinness or some sort of micro brew. And push the dish into the earth so it's like a slug swimming pool. They head into it and drown. Works every time and no need to resort to chemicals. <abbr><em>Lisa Paul’s last blog post..<a href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/LeftCoastCowboys/~3/W8p0TMrOIuY/" rel="nofollow">Top Ten Most Popular Posts on Left Coast Cowboys During Mar 2009</a></abbr></em> Listen to this advice from San Francisco, Slug Capital of the West, (only Santa Cruz beats us: their university team is called The Banana Slugs!)

A man opens the door, sees the slug, then gently scoops it up and throws it as far as he can. Four years later, the slug knocks on the door again. The same man answers. The slug says to the man, "So what was THAT all about?" Ryan, to answer your question of why four years:

So, a slug crawls up to house and knocks on the door. A man opens the door, sees the slug, then gently scoops it up and throws it as far as he can.

Four years later, the slug knocks on the door again.

The same man answers.

The slug says to the man, “So what was THAT all about?”

Leaving weird, shiny trails over the dining room carpet. I don't mind slugs, in general, but I was always worried about the cats eating them. I didn't want to kill them, though. So I grabbed a paper plate (labeled SLUG PLATE in marker), scooped them up, and flung them across the yard. I always got mad when someone threw away the slug plate; it seemed wasteful. <abbr><em>Sharon’s last blog post..<a href="http://thefunctionalweirdo.wordpress.com/2009/03/31/what-now/" rel="nofollow">What now?</a></abbr></em> I’ve never had a garden, but the house I grew up in had slugs inside ALL the time.
