What you need

- 1 bowl with sliding sides

- beer

How to

1. Bury the container in the ground in the middle of the vegetable garden.

2. Leave the edge of the container protruding about 1/2 cm.

3. Fill the container halfway with beer.

4. Attracted to the beer, the slugs will crawl into the bowl to drink it.

5. By drinking the beer, they will fall into the container without being able to come back up.


And There you go ! Thanks to this homemade slug trap, no more ravaged vegetables in your vegetable garden :-)

Easy, fast and efficient, right?

When the slugs are trapped in the container, release them a little further from your house so as not to kill them.

Instead of the bowl, you can use a carton of cut milk, a small aluminum dish, a plastic glass, or the can of beer directly.

Obviously you can scatter several traps in the vegetable patch or garden.

Why does it work?

Slugs can't resist beer! Indeed, this slightly sweet beverage attracts them irresistibly.

They will therefore try to drink from it by going into the container.

Because of the slippery sides of the bowl, they will slip and fall into it.

Trapped in the liquid, they won't be able to get out.
