Hi All

Anyone got any dog friendly remidies if getting rid of these slimy little critters.

Cara has found them & thinks they are good to play with (normally when we want her to do a night time toilet).

From her poo on Sunday I think she might have tried one.

I'm concerned about lungworm risks so would love to get rid of some of them.

Kirsty & Cara xx

Googled slugs and got this.

Trapping
If you need results quickly trapping is the method to opt for.
The Beer Trap Method:
This is quite a traditional technique. All you need is a jar, put it on its side with a small amount of alcoholic beverage in it, and when slugs come along they'll drown in it. It's very simple, it's effective, and you don't need the whole can either.
Black plastic bag method
If you have a slug attack in one area in your garden this is a quick method to reduce the numbers . Take one black bin liner place on the ground in between your tender plants, then place two lettuce which are well pass there sales date. Finally add two tea cups of breakfast bran and pour a cup full of beer (bitter is best) over the lettuce. Leave over night with the top open and check in the morning, the slug should have climbed into the bag over night and as the sun raises in the morning taken shelter in the bottom of the bag, ready to be removed from your garden.
Slug X
This is a slug trap that has been developed over a two-year period, using trials with cardboard boxes before the final plastic prototype was manufactured. The gardenAdvice team presently have these traps under trial. More details can be found at www.westfield-products.co.uk
And finally, if you have both the space and the right environment then ducks and chickens are dual-purpose domestic animals that are great slug and snail hunters.

Thanks for that.

We tried the beer one with our last dog be careful with that one they drink the beer and even worse the slick cocktail also is attractive .... Yuk!!

Little slimy buggers are wandering across the garden so they are in no particular place - considering the hale stone storms we've had tonight there should be a few squished ones.

Like the slug x idea but no space for ducks or chicken ... That would keep Cara permanently entertained though.

Many thanks for your help xx
