Eliminating Slugs In My House ?.

Post by jackyjoy123 »


I have an older wood frame house with a crawl space. I never see slugs outside, but every night they come up from underneath the house. It is not uncommon to find as many as 7 or 8 slugs a night in my kitchen, dining or utility room. Does anyone have a practical remedy for eliminating these slimey creatures from under my house?

Do you have plants inside your house? That might be the problem. You can sprinkle some coffee around your plants and they'll avoid it.

I also read somewhere that you could create a "beer trap". Apparently, slugs love the smell of beer. Just pour some beer in a cup, wait for them to crawl inside, then toss them out.
