Slugs – Dealing With Molluscs

Q: I had a problem last year with slugs munching on my strawberries. What is a safe way to eliminate them?

A: Several effective slug control products contain iron phosphate, a type of fertilizer. Slugs and snails perish from iron poisoning. Scatter the granules near your plants in the evening onto moist soil. Wayward molluscs looking for supper will find a lethal appetizer.
