Despite its slowness, slugs are to plot the real problem. In large quantities, they can destroy a good half of the harvest. Therefore, to deal with this pest is necessary as soon as they become available.

There is one feature of slugs, about which I wrote earlier. These molluscs are reset together with the mucus layer has penetrated the poisonous substance. Thus moving away from chemical treatments. Therefore, the fight against them should be carried out in several stages.

However, if applied at the site purchased products do not want to, there's a great way to kill pests without using chemicals. The essence of the method is to collect the slugs into the trap, and then make a far off-site.

Create a trap for slugs

Create a trap for slugs have no difficulty. For this we need only a plastic cup, a little flour, sugar, yeast and water.

Stir in a glass of water a teaspoon of flies, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of yeast spoon. We should get a homogeneous liquid.

Now we proceed to the creation of the very trap. We will need a cup of yogurt or sour cream. Cut around the circumference of the cup long rectangular openings at the height of about 2 cm from the bottom. The height of the slits must be such that they could easily crawl into a wrecker.

Now we bury the cup so that the slots are at ground level. Fill in glass bait. The fluid level should reach the level of the soil.

That's all, our bait ready. Now you need to cover with its lid to rain does not dilute the contents.

We reserve the lure for a few days and check the results.


The trap works perfectly. After a couple of days in the cup will be a dozen pests, which you can carry away from his garden.

The liquid can be poured into the ditch or compost pit. The ingredients are completely natural and will not do any harm to the soil and plants.
