Slug protection: Regular household ammonia. Mix 1 part ammonia with up to 10 parts water - (I use 1:5) with great success. Spray your plants, over, under, around - anywhere you see slugs or damage. The ammonia is an excellent shot of nitrogen for your plants (hostas love it!) but it kills slugs within seconds and destroys their eggs. Spray throughout the season to reduce their population. I use a 1:1 ratio around my sidewalks, patio, and flowerbeds (even the soil in my garden). My plants loved it (my hostas grew to 4 feet!) and I had no damage from slugs. I keep a sprayer handy when I'm working in my garden - any slug activity gets a quick blast of ammonia (great to do in the evening when they are really active!!)
