The Key
To Keeping
Slugs Out Of
Your Garden
Is In Your
Kitchen Pantry
If you find slugs to be icky, getting rid of them can be challenging. Luckily, there's a hands-free approach to removing slugs that's also affordable and accessible: baking soda.
Slugs need to stay on the moist side. Since baking soda contains sodium, coming into contact with it or ingesting it could dehydrate slugs, so they'll usually stay away from it.
You can also sprinkle it directly on the slugs to kill them faster, but if you can get close enough to do so, you might as well scoop up the pests and discard them.
