Garden Slug Trap

Eliminate slugs in your garden with a watermelon trap.


| August/September 2012


To catch the slugs that plague my garden, I cut a watermelon in half and scoop out the good meat. I then fill the cavity with water and place the shell in a shady spot in the garden.

The slugs seem to be attracted to the melon and end up drowning in the water.
