    Take a 2 Ltr pop bottle and cut off the top just were the curve straightens out. Put a bit of slug bait in the bottom of the bottle, invert the top (looks like a funnel) and staple it inside the bottom. This will create a trap that is easy for the slugs to get into but hard for them to get out.

    If my instructions are hard to follow, I can make up a sample bottle.

    Oh, and if the slugs are small enough, flytraps love them.

    Did you know that the slime that a slug produces is such an effective lubricant that a slug can actually crawl over a razor blade and not be cut.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    Another method to consider: put out a shallow dish near your plants before you go to bed, and fill it with beer. Check in the morning and count the dead slugs.
