slug in my sweet potatoes

Kirkwood, PA

I dug my sweet potatoes today. About 1/3 have been eaten, or are being eaten by a slug (I think). First time this has ever happened in many years of growing sweets. Anyone have any information about this problem?

It's Limax maximus, giant slug. Put down a pet/bird friendly slug bait, or the proverbial beer in a dish. Plow that part of your garden deeply yet this fall to break up egg clusters
