Slugs
« on: October 29, 2020, 02:53:26 pm »
I was looking out my kitchen door window last night--that's where I still have my original Earthbox with strawberries.  I saw something moving close to the box--which is set on my cement sidewalk.  There was a huge slug heading towards my Earthbox.  I went out with a broom and swept it away.  I have seen them earlier in the summer on the sidewalk.  Do they get into the box via the water outlet or just climb up the sides of the box.  I haven't had a lot of leaf damage--earlier in the summer I did--aphids were the cause then. I actually never saw any on the greens of the plant.  I might scream if I looked.  They are creepy. Anyone have any similar experiences and cures for this problem? Thanks!
