My friend used beer to catch the slugs she then tipped them out on the path and the seagulls came along and ate them, result drunk seagulls.
Milk works the same, the slugs crawl in as they are attracted to the sweetness and are drowned. Cheaper than alcohol!
As I say try broken egg shells,really works...dry them break them up & place around the plant(s) affected...tried the lager traps,but made me retch,and I have got a very strong stomach..... I have got a pond now,and adopted some forg spawn,this also seems to be working,although we have got really big slugs,possibly the Spanish ones everbody is talking about,approx 3-4 inches long black and green,so the frogs only appear to go for the babies which is great....Strange really,as we lived in Spain for 6 years,& never once saw a single slug anywhere... ....
