Hi there,
Thank you for your inquiry. Slugs are a persistent and damaging pest throughout the Pacific Northwest. There are a number of approaches to controlling them including the use of chemical molluscicides, traps, barriers, removal of resting sites, soil disturbance, and encouraging natural enemies. Can you provide me with some additional information on where you are finding the slugs and what crop they are damaging? A photograph of the slugs would also be extremely helpful.
Thank you
