The Slug, every garden owners worst nightmare. (I know, snails are a bit of a pest as well, but I would like to focus on the slug today).
There are many ways to fight the slugs in your garden.
You can put a little salt on them (they will melt).
You can use slugpellets, but there is usualy poison in them. Not very nice for the animals that eat the poisoned slugs.
You can make a slug-kabab (or slug-on-a-stick), but I don't think many would like to see that on a grill.
You can pick them up and throw them in the neighbours garden (but your neighbour will probably throw them back the next day).
And so on....
There are many ways to get rid of a slug but non as satisfying as the use of the Slug-a-pult.
You can shoot the slug a fair distance, and prevent the neighbour from throwing your old slugs back in your garden.
It is also much more fun to shoot the slug, the only icky bit is that you will have to pick up the slug and either train it to crawl into the barrel or you will have to force it in (the first option could be a little time consuming).
And to top it all off. I just like to think I give the slug a small chance to survive, and give it the ride of its life in the process. I'll bet that the slug will never have traveled this fast, this must be like warp speed in slug-land.
p.s. I noticed that some comments I made in the pictures don't seem to stay where I placed them but end up all over the place, so if that's a bit messy, don't blame me, I didn't shake my monitor that hard....
And before I forget, english is not my native language so there could be some mistakes here and there...
