Does anyone have experience with employing duck to get rid of slugs in the vegetable garden? Does it work? I have such an annoying problem with slugs that I'd like to try .

My slugs are all proven alcoholics! They love beer and seem to prosper from it. They all seem to be very fond of copper jewelry. And Sluggo and its similar products are very expensive.

This is so funny.
I had a friend in FL that had ducks. They dig all around her vegetable garden and made a mess.
Jump and poop in the pool too ...

Salt's about the best cure I've ever found. Fries them on the spot.
