Well, beer as slug bait really works, so hopefully they won't be attacking my plants anymore.

It's good to see how effective it can be. What plants were they nibbling on?

They were nibbling on hostas, dahlias, and others, but this particular container was under gloriosa daisies.

Does anybody know if O'Doul's will work? Or does there have to be alcohol in it?

I just finished putting mounds of chick grit around a bunch of my plants to help protect them, but it looks like the beer is a sure-fire solution!

O'Douls will work. Which beer to use should be determined by cost....the cheaper stuff works just fine.
