Slugs Suck

Slimy and disgusting. Ugly and destructive.

This season I have had a terrible time with slugs devouring my annuals -- even those in containers. My million bells have been hardest hit and it makes me sad. I have a general philosophy of "plant enough for the pests to enjoy" so I usually don't fret about the occasional creature that partakes in my garden, but my tolerance has reached its limit this summer.

Last night it rained and this morning HUGE (well-fed) slugs were crawling all over my flowers and even on the sides of my house! Ugh. I picked them off and flung them out in the yard because I cannot bear to kill them... I know I should be more ruthless...
