Slug Bait Recipes

Recipe 1
2 cups warm water
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon yeast

Recipe 2

2 tablespoons flour
1 /2 teaspoon brewer's yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups warm water

Water should not be hotter than 110° or the yeast will be killed. Mix ingredients and pour into slug trap.

Make a slug trap from a recycled plastic food container such as a large margarine tub. Just under the upper rim of the container cut several 1 inch holes ( flat at the bottom and big enough to accommodate a large slug.) Sink the plastic container in your garden dirt, letting the top stick out with the holes very slightly above soil level. Pour a couple inches of slug bait into the container. Snap the lid back onto the container to keep out rain and debris. Clean out drowned slugs daily and replace liquid every couple days.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
