Why are slugs drawn to the side of my shed? I went out tonight on the back deck and there are 11 slugs. I picked them off and went back an hour later and there are 9 more!

I was out and squished a 3 inch long one... i didnt think they got that long! It was nasty!

RE: Slugs

After all the rain, we've got slugs decorating the garage doors. I think they just like to climb. It's pretty stupd because they're climbing away from the greenary. However their buddies aren't all so silly. I pay my son 25 cents a slug to remove them from my flower beds. He worked for about 15 minutes last evening and made $10.00. =-O Those slimey dudes really love callibrachoa.

RE: Slugs

My neighbors saw my children out collecting slugs and showed the kids how they put out little bowls of beer and the slugs just climb in. The neighbors thought they were saving us trouble, but my kids aren't having any of that. They get paid to collect slugs and don't want to be put out of business.

RE: Slugs

Do you think they have zombie slugs? :-0
