I have thousands of slugs in my flower garden, last year I had placed a big potted tomato plant in there and they were climbing up the pot to get to it, how can I get rid of them.. the only thing anyone said could help was to pput a plate of beer out for them.. but I have so many I would need cases of it.. thank you for any help you might have on this subject.

Slugs can be a major problem but there are ways to combat them. First, if the pan of been doesn't work, you can purchase slug/snail bait to combat them. There is an organic slug bait available online at Gardens Alive, www.gardensalive.com
