We’ve recently had challenges with slugs on our salads. At first I was getting up early, plucking them from our make salads and feeding them to the chickens.
But now they are eating all the young salads we’re replanting and killing them before they can take. Literally 100% of the recently planted salads are gone. So before I plant a fresh batch of juvenile salads I want to try to protect them.
Hence this slug trap experiment. Honey water in a tray. The plan is that this will attract them, and every morning I should be able to harvest them.
Will see. If it works, will experiment with something more substantial.
