SLUGS!!! These little pests will devour your new plants and vegetables. If you are looking for way to keep them in check, William met with Norm from Lilly Miller to cover some of the different ways you can deter them. Norm told us that 80% of the slug bait manufactured is used here in the Northwest.
First we talked about the Corry’s product that has a great track record of success, the Deadline liquid product, pellet products and the Corry’s meal. All of these products contain Meta, the most effective way of controlling slugs. William also talked about the non-chemical methods of control. He covered beer traps and copper tape which gives them a shock.
Norm then covered a couple of the broad range applications. First was the Worry Free product that is safe for pets and wildlife. There are various ways to handle slugs including chemical and natural methods, and if you have pets or small children you need to make your choices wisely. Take the time to find the method that’s best for you and check with us at Portland Nursery if you need help.
