Lives up in the rafters

Slugs are a common garden pest in Washington and many other states. Slugs slither along the ground at night to eat plants, flowers and roots. Slugs like damp places and feed at night. Most gardeners look for ways to keep slugs out of their gardens. One way is to use plants that slugs hate such as garlic, mint and cabbage. Some people use salt and traps to get rid of the pests! Predators of slugs include frogs and birds.
