I'm a first time gardener trying to do container gardening and I've already run into several large hurdles!
There are apparently HUNDREDS of slugs in my yard which is fairly shaded by the tree canopy. I tried commercial slug bait, beer traps, DE and physically picking them off but there's just too many. Nothing seems to be helping and they're munching up my plants!
Now my squash have a problem. Idk if it's fungal, bacterial, too much water, etc., and I definitely know what to do for it! (I've only tried neem oil so far)
Pictures of sick plant and one night of slug hunting attached.
Any help on any of these issues would be greatly appreciated!
