Water Plants To Repel Slugs

 

 

While wet, humid conditions in a garden are very welcoming to slugs, there is a proper time to water that will reduce slug activity.

Water plants in the morning so that the moisture can dry before evening. Leaving plants, mulch and soil wet at night is a slugs delight.

There are numerous ways to control slugs without dangerous chemicals that can harm pets and children.
