There were some cans of Miller Lite in the house when I bought it last summer. I stuck the cans in a closet, waiting for the right recipient. Today, I found a garden culprit and a use for that beer.

Someone was eating the tops off my pumpkin plants. Slugs. So I made slug traps.

I took some plastic containers and a trowel. I set the containers into the ground and added the beer. Voila, slug traps! They will slime in and drown in beer. Sorry, slugs! It's you or the pumpkins.

Now, how do I keep the dog out of the beer?
