How would you handle this situation? (slugss in the house) eww!!!

We had went out of town for a few days and when we came back we saw shining marks on our carpet in the corner of the room eww...I was so grossed out. I have seem them outside in the backyard and on the cement part but NEVER in the house OMG...I don't want to kill them I just don't want them in the house. Last night as I was going to bed there was a small slug I just got some tissue paper and took it outside.

  • Why would you want to keep them alive? I would salt around the house, then stick out shallow plates of beer. The slugs love beer and will drown in it. Slugs are like ants or cockroaches. Pests, and nothing more.

  • Salt and beer.....slugs, in my book, are garden pests.

  • copper wire will also deter slugs, just stretch out around your house and they will not cross it.
