My purple cabbages, brocolli, radish and peas are struggling to survive winter while being nibbled by slugs and small snails!
I had one trap set up - with just holes cut in the side (no drawbridge) and had tried a yeasty spread in water as the bait, but my dog was attracted to it!
I tried beer and the results were impressive - about 15 slugs in one night!
Luckily the DH had some beer he did not like the taste of, but now you must remember to collect all the beer dregs up from your party or BBQ and put them to work.
Beer works really well - the little blighters seem to love it, and unfortunately for them, they drown.
