Beer for Slugs

When the slugs started to eat your pepper plants offer them a little beer! Any type will do, they just can't resist.

I wanted to post this garden update over a week and a half ago but sometimes life has other plans. So finally here is a little garden update. Since these pictures the garden has gotten even bigger with more little veggies starting to make an appearance.


  1. I live in Raleigh and I have found that my slugs strongly prefer a very hoppy IPA!!! I did a test with all sorts of beer a couple of years ago. Their least favorite? Corona. I also found these super cute little stone mushrooms that you fill with beer for the slugs. I think I got them from Gardner's Supply. Good Luck!

    Wow, thanks for the info. I did not even think about trying out different beers to see what they like best. I guess we have gotten lucky with Coors, but now I am interested to see if something else works even better! And it would be great to have a cuter beer container. The little cups work but not very attractive. Have any creative solutions for tomato blight?
