slugs on hosta

Asked August 30, 2016, 6:09 PM EDT

What can I do throughout the growing season to get rid of slugs on my hostas? I just learned what the problem is. Can I do anything this year to prevent an infestation next year, and what steps should I take next spring?

Washington County Minnesota slugs

You might moisten the area then place a board on the mulch overnight. In the morning lift the boards and deal with the slugs clinging there. Here is a link to more information.
