    Dale, he isn't looking to destroy ALL the slugs in his collection, just the one. I don't think Mesurol is sufficiently selective for his needs.

    Precisely, Marni. Hence the bounty on this specific SOB.

    What's wrong with sprinkling some DE around his hangout? That's pretty specific.

    like rats that learn to not eat poison, there is always going to be a smarter than your average slug/snail. I finally found one of each that had been avoiding me. I prefer a nice slow slice in half with a pair of scissors for the most evil of the evil (have taken out inflos or just buds), the regular evil get dropped and squished.

    good luck
