At 5:00 a.m. I was spraying for slugs. I use 1 cup ammonia and 4 cups water. Spray the entire plants including the ground around the base. This solution kills the slug on contact. Smile

I see alittle slug damage so I sprayed the hostas, ligularias, blood leaf plant and bloody dock (sorel) with my ammonia mixture. It sure is alot cheaper than Sluggo or Escargo.

I must spray for slugs this morning and the best time is before it gets too light out.  The ammonia mixture must hit the slug in order to be effective. It is about 5:15 a.m., the robins are singing and out I go.  My favorite time of the day, nature at its best. See you all later.Smile

Smile It is that time of the gardening season that I start my SLUG ROUTINE. It is time consuming, but very effective. I do this once weekly for about a month and then once monthly. Unless I see a lot more slug damage, then I start back with once weekly.
