5 tips for combating slugs in the garden:
Monitor – check for slugs in the garden every day
Cultivate – aggressive cultivation, like digging or rotovating the garden soil, kills slugs & blocks their movements
Prepare good seedbed - a fine, well consolidated seedbed is not a good home for slugs
Sow seeds deeper – sowing at 4cm rather than 2 or 3cm makes it harder for slugs to attack germinating vegetable plants
Put out slug traps to catch the slugs & pick them off when seen
