Slug bait

A quick animated gif of my research which the use of pennies as a slug deterrent actually works! The older the penny, the greater the copper content it seems which seems to be the secret to chasing away those little bastards.

I made rings of pennies as my counter measures last year, but of course over the season they mostly were disturbed and lost in the garden. I am thinking now about drilling holes and stringing them together with copper wire.
