My mint, before slugs and salt. All that rain we had here in NE Texas brought out the slugs. I had heard that salt would help so I got out the salt and salted around the plants. But then, (yep one of my briliant ideas) I thought what good does it do to salt around the plant if the slugs are already on the plant. So I just sprinkled some in the areas affected. BIG MISTAKE.
My Spearming, Choclate Mint & Pineapple Sage... AAAKKKK.
No fear, it is coming back WHEW!!!What did I do to get rid of those slugs, I had to do something right away, I mean they were eating my garlic too. I put 2 tuna cans & 1 small margerine tub in the ground, poured some beer in, and those little buggers ran to it. They like the yeast apparently, they drink it, fall in and cannot get out. I did have to re-plant my Petunias, and lost some Merrigolds, but at least my herbs were salvaged.
