Slugs & Beer

Leave a comment

When I first found slugs in my beehives I wasn’t sure what to do about. I decided to put out homemade slug bait traps made from water bottles cut in half, buried to the top in the dirt and filled half way with beer. I set these out on Sunday night and finally found that it is working. Already in this trap were two slugs under beer and another one headed in.
