Yuk, yuk, yuk!!!

OK, I need advice.

I have a problem which is disgusting and for which I haven't got an answer.

We have indoor slugs and they're gross.

I don't know where they get into the house, I don't know where the buggers hide when they're in the house and I want the scumbag filth out of my house.

I know they're not supposed to like copper so I've put copper strips over a couple of thresholds but I don't know what else to do. I know in the graden some people use beer traps or slug pellets and really evil people use salt. But none of those seem appropriate indoors.

So if someone has a way of getting rid of the slimy little shits, please, please, please let me know.

My grandad used to make a beer trap. They like beer, apparently. It is probably too messy for indoors.
But as I am evil I would go for salt.

We used to have slugs in our house in Sheffield, Alex did 'salt' them, but they kind of dissolve which is quite disgusting. Beer traps work in the gardent, but if you leave beer in your house you might be tempted to just drink it! Jo

Having been an evil child who grew to become and evil adult I know salt melts slugs. Melted slug is not something I want on the carpets.

Beer traps - don't think I'd be tempted to drink but would worry about them being disturbed by cat/children.

I could stand guard all night, catch them and then take them outside to salt them. Dave says salting is too mean.
