Homemade Slug Be Gone Brew

Old Fashion Home Slug Brew

I think most gardeners could write a book on slugs and what they do to your garden. I have tried everything from beer traps to slug bait. I’ve gone back to just using a homemade 3 ingredient slug bait. They sure eat more than their share, and really love hostas. I also hunt for them after a rain, early morning and before dark. So hear is my old fashion home slug brew recipe. ┬áThis slug brew is also good for ants, millipedes, sow bugs, earwigs, and gnats.
