Normally, I am pretty set against pesticides, herbicides, and the like. I try to use natural methods and ingredients in my yard and garden. I spend a lot of time picking off bugs, slugs, and assorted critters. I use mulch to control weeds, plant native species that are naturally more resistant to fungus, and I have a worm bin to make compost.
But the slugs have been decimating my shade garden despite my natural attempts at curbing their munching and I had to take things up a notch in order to save the plants.
A yellow box of Corry’s did the trick. This morning I went out and picked up 49 dead / dying slugs from around the pansies, hostas, and mums. That’s after just one application. What I like about Corry’s is that it only gets slugs and snails. It doesn’t kill sow bugs, worms, spiders, centipedes, etc. – all of which don’t harm the plants – just the slimy slugs that eat plants right down to the ground.
I must say, seeing just how many slugs were attacking my little yard made me glad I caved and bought the box of Corry’s. If I’d waited any longer, the little slimy army would have killed all our hard work.
