We haven't used any big spray or slug bait since we lost a chicken earlier this year. Makes me so sad. she was young and died after I had put down some good ole Corry's. After that happened I even let the slugs have the hostas. Not worth losing pets and killing bugs to make things look perfect 😉💚

Thanks you Susan. It was foolish to use it. I've always been very careful with it because of the animals. It's possible something else could have happened to her, but I'm erring on the side of caution. So plants are suffering because it was a really wet spring and slugs by the ton. @Susanandsteve

Always sad to lose an animal... Does the eggshell thing work on slugs? (Put (clean) crushed eggshells around the plants - in theory, the sharp shells will keep the slugs out.) I've never tried it, but I've read about it in a few different places...

Unfortunately my dogs love to eat eggshells 🙃 so they would forage for them I wish they would forage for slugs 😂 Next year I will put beer out next to vulnerable plants. Our cool spring really helped the slugs. Thank you for your advice, which probably works well for most people @battlekittyspastica
