Here in the Pacific Northwest, slugs are the biggest problems for us home gardeners. I can go out at night and there will be countless slugs, up to 4 or 5 inches in length. They eat their body weight daily and can cause absolute devastation in the garden.
As a person who is attempting to rely on my vegetable garden, this is a huge problem. I'm on a mission to find out exactly what popular methods work here (most do not) and what products are worth the money (most are not). I'm conducting detailed experiments on my personal blog with photographs.
My latest blog entry is a discussion on the expense of iron phosphate.
If you have a slug problem, share your stories with me! I can commiserate.
