no more slugs

Just an idea, i don't have any outdoor beds, but if i did, i'd outline them with mounds of salt, and inch or two high. Slugs wouldn't stand a chance crawling over that, and to keep then comming up from under the ground, put a layer of salt under the beds as well, with a sevral inch dirt buffer zone of course. THe rain would leach the salt into the ground, the slugs would hate it there.

Just an idea

you could make beer traps too.

slugs go out of their way to get to the beer that you lay out in bowls submerged to the rim. Then they all drown. It's alittle more practical then pouring salt everywhere. I think you put a trap every square foot, but i'm not sure... Someone will know on here. They were talking about this not too long ago.

If I was a hostage-taker, I'd ask the cops
for a football helmet full of cottage cheese
so they'd think I was crazy.

1)First problem, the salt would be washed away and leached into the soil, which causes your second problem 2)nothing grows in highly saline soil(ever seen a salt flat?) or water. It would kill the slugs and your outdoor beds.

Beer traps are a great idea (but a waste of vital beer), ashes would work but would get washed & blown away, Prickly/hairy, leaves surrounding the patch (such as lambs ears) keeps the slugs away, but they get blown away. I would reccomend diatomaceous earth. Its like extremely small peices of glass that tears slugs apart when they move over it, yet small enough to do no damage to you, but over time that gets washed away too, but it lasts longer then most of the other methods.

Don't beleive everything you know.
