Slugs invading garage and dog food/water

Post by Brya » Sun, 21 Jun 1998 04:00:00



I came home from work late last night, pulled into the garage, and found
slugs in my dogs food bowl and water dish!

What's up with that?

I have a dog, and two young kids.  What can I put around my house that
will kill/prevent the slugs and snails, but won't hurt the kids, dog,
and birds?

Thanks,

I heard that dogfood soaked in water is a great bait for slugs.  Try this in
places where your dog won't get it and then collect the slugs each day and
kill them with salt.

The standard trap for slugs is a flat dish with beer in it.  I am not sure
how that will affect the kids, dog, and birds?

I recall reading somewhere that slugs hated sharp edges; like cedar
chips; pne bark mulch. I'm going to try bales of cedar chips in my dog's
runs and see if that works. I have the same problem with slugs in dog
food and barn. Lyn

I could be mistaken, but I believe my mother used to leave a trail of salt
around our dog's dish.
