Guerilla stomping, 2009

Last years outdoor was a complete failure. Every single one of my plants were eaten by slugs but this time I'm back with a vengeance!
I have selected several outdoor locations, started some seeds and will be prepared for the slug invasion.
Most of my harvest will be turned into bubble... gotta get myself something better than my 1 gal bubblebag copies...

Seeds started so far:
Freja
Phils Erdpurt * E-rocket/Danish Passion (My own F2 - males were autoflowering indoor under 19 hours of light)
Katsu Bubba * B3
ErocDp/dc X B3
HTC DC/ErocDP X B3
Htc DC * ErocDp F2.

I also have some mothers for clones:
Erdpurt F2
Phils Erdpurt * E-rocket/dp
Redhaired Sonja * ErdPurt

If the auto-father Phils Erdpurt * E-rocket/Danish Passion F2 are early then one of the plots with this strain will be for seedmaking.
Here is how the mother looks when seeded in an indoor grow - I have BIG expectations for this one.

Got a little work done in the weekend - dug 2 plots - each 2*2 m and cleared the ground for another plot. Still need more places - in particular I need 2 good remote places far away from each other and also away from the rest of the grow. 1 will be for making some more Freja seeds, the other will be a seedplot for Phil's erdpurt * E-rocket/dp F2.

I also cut up some soda cans to use as slug prevention - no plant will go out without them, except for a couple of mothers that are too big for the cans. They're just gonna have to try and outgrow the slug attacks...

put a saucer or plastic lid full of beer near the plant's base. A plastic cap buried even with the soil works best.

Slugs love beer and will go drink and drown.... Slug problem solved!

You can even use old flat beer, they don't mind...

I've thought about the beer but it might be counterproductive - if it just serves to attract the slugs then they might also take a good bite from my plants before they find the beer and drown.
My first line of defense is actually iron phosphate slug pellets - the slugs are supposed to stop eating almost immediately and die shortly after if they eat those. That should decimate their numbers a bit before they reach the cans - hopefully enough that only very few will succeed in scaling the walls.
Now... all I need is little dwarfs to scorch them with burning oil and some elven archers - then I'll be set.

The beer is irresitable to them, and if any are around they will all drown in the beer.

It don't have to be very deep to drown them either. You could put out some bait stations circling your plants.

Torture a few by pouring salt on em and let the rest hear the screams.... lol

The beer technique works really well. Last year after I noticed slug damage, I put out a can of beer, and didn't have any damage from that point forward.

2 plots I dug last weekend. Revisited the first one and put in 2 motherplants - more will follow shortly. Broke my shovel digging today - word of advice: Don't buy a cheap ass trifold shovel with a plastic handle.

Pics without plants.

Tempered Steel spades only.
For slugs I use collars made from copper flashing, and place them around the base of the plant. Slugs won't climb copper.

^^ what he said.
and for extra added measure, use crushed eggshells around the perimeter of the stalk as well. It's like walking on razor blades to a slug.
