Will minced garlic work equally well?

Hi TiggiePurr...

I don't know if the garlic will repel slugs, but if you mix up a garlic-based soap spray, it should work the same way to kill them. See my current article on spraying safely (http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/1244/)--the soap spray recipe is at the bottom.

On a positive note, the garlic spray is a good deterrent to rabbits and sometimes deer.

One of the best rabbit and deer deterrents/repellents is Louisiana Hot Sauce - Tobasco.

I think it is one ounce to a gallon. Spray plants and soil around them.
