I am sorry to hate one of God’s creatures, but I do hate slugs. They are so repulsive to see and their trails are awful. I am sure you can buy a lot of products to get rid of them, but I have a great suggestion that is cheap and they do go out happy. Beer!!!!! They love it. Just put some beer (the cheapest you can buy) in a disposable aluminum pie pan. The snails will find it, climb up on their pods to drink, get drunk, and fall in and drown. Simple, but it works.
