Can slugs live in plumbing pipes? If so, what to do?

Asked September 8, 2017, 12:30 PM EDT

We found a slug in our bathroom sink and right next to the drain -- on the 3rd floor of our house. Lived here 3 plus years and never seen a slug in the house. And, we don't see any slug trail on the vanity top, vanity sides floor etc. It seems likely to us it came out of the plumbing pipe. If so, what to do?

Some possibilities include slugs may have come in on your clothing, dogs, but not from pipes. Monitor the area and no control is necessary.
