Re: Sensitized Slug Slime Recipe
Interesting that slugs dissolve in sugar, because it was always salt
that kids used to use for the same purpose. Also beer was used to
control slugs in the garden, but I'm not sure it dissolved the slugs,
just attracted them and then they'd get trapped in the beer.
Hmm... I've had a stubborn bronchitis for weeks, but no, I think
I'll stick with cough syrup and brandy, thanks. Shudder,
