Does anyone have any recent successes with getting rid of slugs? Your input is greatly appreciated. I have most of my orchids outside in the summer, apparently I did not examine my Masdevallias carefully enough when I brought them in or some slug laid eggs in one and I did not see them. A big fat slug ate all the buds on the first blooming of my M. carousel, I found some eggs [ don't know if they were it's eggs but got rid of them] back in late September. Today, on the first of Dec. I found a quite small slug, I need to do something to get rid of any others there may be. I have looked carefully but don't see any, Ha! Ha! they are sneaky buggers. I can do a tray of beer or has anyone used diatomaceous earth to keep them out of the pots, it does a fair job in the garden under hostas. I have viewed all the old posts on slugs and snails and have considered using one of the suggestions on there. Mesurol, Eascar-Go, Slugfest, Durham, Kocide 3000, Seven, ammonia. Is one of these really good?
