For the trap
- 1lt yoghurt container (or similar) with lid
For the lure mix
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp yeast
These homemade slug traps work just as well (if not better) than the commercial ones you can buy in shops. And instead of using beer as bait, they use simple ingredients found in almost every pantry.
The idea was taken from a YouTube clip from One Yard Revolution. You can find the video here.
Add all ingredients to a jar and shake to combine. Pour the finished liquid lure into your slug trap and sit back!
(Note that you can easily make more mix by doubling or quadrupling the recipe, depending on the number of traps you
have to fill.)
