I am from Bangalore, I recently came across this lovely blog and found excellent information about gardening, thank you all for your valuable suggestions and inputs.

It’s been a month now since I have started a small kitchen garden, but I have difficulty maintaining it as we have lots of slug/ snail around which destroy my garden, especially now since its moist and raining periodically in Bangalore.

I have tried sprinkling table salt which temporarily get rid of the slug but I am looking forward for some expert guidance to get rid of them.

Hi Clement,

I am not sure how timely my reply is, but here it goes.

I have suggested this to many of my customers in the store and it has worked 100%. Place a small cup and pour some beer in it. Yes, Beer. Place that container where you are likely to get slugs. Check the situation next day.

Keep me posted
