Slug Pubs - research opportunity
As we all know this is a good year for slugs and consequently an annoying one for gardeners. Even in our garden with its gritty loam, hedgehogs and frogs, we are seeing the effects of marauding slugs.
I have therefore asked my Under gardener to spare a couple of inches of beer every now and then to use in a Slug Pub.
Understanding that the slugs only need a small portion of the beer in a standard bottle, my Under-gardener has enthusiastically volunteered to do some research into the best beer for slug pubs, but wary of the possible damage to his liver (and bank balance) and seeing no reason to re-invent the wheel, I wondered whether any of you have established the slugs' beer of choice or alternatively whether you and/or your Under-gardeners would like to join in my Under-gardener's research on this important subject.
He has pointed out to me that this research will have added benefits as the Recycled Beer can be used as a potent activator on the compost heaps.
Will you join in this research? What is there to lose?
