I found this ginormous slug in the back yard when i was pulling weeds. He's as big as a sharpie. I think that it's called a black slug. They can get up to 20 cm long. It turns out we have a huge slug problem. The marigolds i planted out front last week were eaten down to the ground. Im starting to keep my egg shells from going out to the compost pile. Supposedly, slugs hate crawling over the broken shells. I need to try to figure out how to manage them organically and safely for animals.
