CN do you have wood sides on your beds?  If so what is the condition of the wood? Or maybe you have rotting wood chips on top of the soil or MM. I expect damp rotting wood will attract these critters and result in a population explosion. Just thinking and I have nothing scientific to back up those thoughts.

I have proof. I moved a damp piece of wood that was holding some netting down and there was a whole colony living on and under it.

Yup, I had wood chips on top of the soil. I just read that organic mulch will draw slugs to strawberry plants, so I figured that's what brought them. 

I just upped my game. Now I really load up on the rinds every night and water them down. Then I get up super early in the morning to get rid of them all. Since my beds are so far off the ground, there must be an end to it somewhere. They must have come in with some dirt or compost. I can't imagine they could find their way from the outside world to my beds that are 3' off the ground. Shocked I have already gotten rid of all organic matter and cut off all leaves that touched the ground. I'm re-using old peat pots to plant seeds I wanted to direct sow and I still haven't figured out what to do about my daikons. Sad

They crawl up my 2' tall table tops. But I sprinkle Sluggo Plus when I set out the seedlings, or even just before I set them out. Wink
