Those of us who fight these little beasties, need to start doing that right now just that before they come out of hiding in our mulch piles....OC

Slugs are out already at my house (zone 5b, SW Ohio...) after the warm temps and rain we've had, they've ventured out of hiding. Today I killed about 6 or so... Hostas aren't even out of dormancy yet, but there they were, slithering around on the poor little dormant eyes. Guess I better get out the sluggo and the ammonia with sprayer... Let the slug-slaying begin!!

Now, that's funny!!!! :lol: We are in zone 5b and I have hostas up, some about 2 inches already. I didn't see any snails on those, but my scabiosa looked bad, so I looked a little closer...snails all over it! I'd better get busy. :eek:

It took me awhile, but I finally got it. Boy am I getting slow and dim witted in my aging years :D
