Green Tip: Trap Garden Slugs with Beer

This tip from Plenty magazine had us doubled over laughing. Why?

First of all, there's the great image above. Second ...

A good friend once had a minor slug infestation in her apartment (the memory makes us shiver). She'd come home to slime trails across her rug and couch, but she could never find the culprit. She heard about the "slug-beer trap" theory and strategically placed pie tins full of Bud Light throughout the apartment.

She never had any luck ... and then, one night she came home to find the slug just chillin' next to the coffee table. After a good hearty scream she released it into the yard.

Maybe she was doing something wrong? Maybe.

Because Plenty seems to think that beer is a great, non-toxic way to catch garden slugs. Check it out.
