First heard this from Chuck Palahniukís book Choke. In one scene the main character in the book desperate for beer went from house to house in an upper-class neighborhood stealing the beer left out at night for the slugs.

We used to take beer cans, cut them in two, countersink them into the dirt in the garden, and pour in a bit of beer. Best slug traps ever.

Just donít step on one.

Used to do it all the time when I was a kid - saves a lot of damage on lettuces/greens.

Does anyone whoís done it know if slugs have a particular beer preference? Iíd like to think they have cheap taste and not so discerning that they only go for a Rochefort 10 or something.

Considering my great grandparents used this trick, cheap swill works just fine.

Doesnít take much beer. Just toss an empty bottle in the yard and chances are youíll find a slug in it the next day.
