Control Slugs In Winter

 

 

Winter is a good time to reduce the amount of slugs in next year's garden.

Fallen leaves make a good winter home for slugs so rake up tree leaves and either save them for mulch for next summer or compost them for next year's garden.

Slugs also like to winter in the crowns of plants such as hostas, hellebores, and daylilies.

Remove homes for the slugs and remove any slugs you find. That will be that many less slugs, and their offspring, to contend with in the next year's garden.
