Quick tip: I discovered last year that elevating my container garden by slipping a few bricks under each container substantially cuts down on slug attacks.
I'm not entirely sure why this works, but my guess is that the extra distance, including some inverted slimming created by the bricks deters the slug from making the journey to your veggies. Regardless, I'm happy to no longer be messing with beer slug traps.
