A stone axe wielding woman with half a million bees swarming around her head, violently attacking poor defenceless slugs.

For slugs I use a jam jar with water and dish soap in it, this does the trick but empty it on a regular basis as it will smell terrible after a time.

Same question though Lucie - when you empty out the container somewhere, do any eggs in the dead slugs hatch and make more slugs?

Small containers of kerosene (100ml or so), accidentally left on a path overnight, also attract slugs, we have found... who needs beer for traps?! Mind you, the kerosene (heating oil) costs more than the beer right now...
