Need info. about slugs
I always have a problem with slugs because of the amount of wood (in piles) right on the ground in my yard. I have been able to keep them at bay with slug pellets, but they are expensive and have to be re-applied after rain. This year I am planning to build a raised bed for lettuce and other green plants and I do not want to eat any if slugs have been on them. I am thinking of applying copper flashing (about 1 inch thick) around the outside of the boards to keep slugs out, but I have never tried the copper prevention. Has anyone ever tried copper as a deterrent? Does it work, or am I wasting my time?
Thank you in advance,
