This cheap, easy, and very effective solution will keep your slugs and snails at bay.

Eliminate those slugs, bringing an end to the slinky, slimy, greedy little monsters. Help them dive right into your homemade brew.

Mix the following together, in a handheld sprayer bottle:

1 ½ Cups Ammonia
1 Tablespoon Murphy’s Oil Soap
1 ½ cups water

Overspray any location where you see the usual signs of slug activity. Also spray directly onto the slugs if you are out in the evening checking on your flowers, shrubs, seedlings, and garden produce.

The first two products can easily be found at supermarkets, grocery stores, and places like Walmart and True Value hardware stores.

Never again pay for pricy slug baits, snail killer gels, or any toxic products from the store shelf! Keep the big money in your pocket for the flowers and garden you love. Be sure to use this spray all year round to help kill the active slugs/snails and the baby critters that are hatching out from spring on.

Can also be used in the fall to keep slugs from wintering over in your yard.

Take care using around tender young plants!
