slug? what slug?
This slug is so bold he was on my lettuce in midday! (They're supposed to be nocturnal.) Well, he may not have realized it was midday with all the clouds and gloom we've had for the past month. Or, he realized I have much more lettuce than I can possibly eat.
I haven't done anything yet to eliminate the slugs, though I've seen their damage for several weeks now. I moved the melons and bok choy they were eating and that stopped that problem. They're in certain spots in my garden. Now they're on the outer leaves of my lettuce and the lower bean leaves. I'd rather not put down the slug bait (its very toxic to dogs) and they really aren't doing much damage.
(BTW - I picked this guy up and threw him way out into the weeds.)
