Slugs eat small holes in the leaves and feed mainly at night. Slug damage can disfigure a plant fast. They tend to be happiest in the overwatered garden. Besides cutting back on water, there is a slug solution in your laundry room: dryer lint. Slugs will not crawl over dryer lint. Simply remove the lint from the dryer and roll it into a rope and circle it around the plants that are more prone to slug damage for simple, organic protection. Besides slug control you can save your drier lint year-round for your summer garden for use as a mulch or add to your compost pile.
