  • Yep, shallow container & fill with beer on the outside of your house around the porch area. The slugs will drink the beer & die. You could also put copper wire all the way around the outside of the porch because the slugs won't cross the copper, but the beer is easier.

  • Take a lid from a mayonaise jar and push it into the soil. Fill with beer. Slugs die happy.
