Pest Control: Slugs

The nerve. These slugs are cruising around the farm a little too comfortably and actions must be taken. We've spotted them before hanging around the crops. Slugs are almost entirely made up of water so they have to stay in damp places to keep from drying up. This critter was found slithering across the path in broad daylight.

Slugs are attracted to yeast and barley. We filled a couple bowls with beer and sunk them into the ground.
The party got out of hand, in the morning we found over a dozen baby slugs drowning in the beer.
