how do I get rid of them? I know salt works to kill them and I have a line of salt on my porch, but, is there a way to just.. get rid of them altogether? Are there any of those little garden stakes or whatever you can put in the yard? I keep stepping on them on the porch at night and its just.. icky! ew!

I HATE SLUGS!!!!

EWWW!

Ya know -- I'm not sure there is a way to get rid of them all together. Maybe putting some type of pest control down on the lawn would work? I know Mike does ours to kill the grubs before they turn into Japanese Beetles.

I found some info on keeping slugs away from certain plants, but I don't think it would be practical to use the same advice for your porch.

thanks anyway. Kyan goes out and plays in the yard without me out there ( he goes out with his brothers) but still, I'm afraid it would get on toys and he would put them in his mouth. oh well.

My FIL puts a saucer of beer in the corner of his porch ... they crawl to it and die.

I read the thing about the beer too. They are supposedly so attracted to it that they'll crawl right in and drown.
I've only stepped on a slug barefoot once and it was the most disgusting feeling.
