Slug Catcher & End of School Year!

The copper around my planters is not working this year, so after dark last night I went on a slug hunt. Tonight I will be better prepared.  Finish nail pounded into end of stick, flashlight duct taped to stick, to see the slimy slugs, and plastic bags to pull the bodies off the nail w/o getting my hands slimy. BoRah.
