But I'll need something to cheer me up while I'm doing it, because even though I wear nitrile gloves while I do it, it's so ICKY YUCK YUCK EWWWW to pick a big one up and feel it squirm and wriggle!
So what are some happy thoughts to think? Or if you can't think of any, what would be a more fun way to kill slugs? (I use SlugGo but apparently this is a new hatching.... ick.)
ETA: The slug pickin' was quite successful -- I got 50 or 60 small and medium slugs, and 2 or 3 breeding size adults. I also timed their agonies in the water -- from drop in to complete relaxation in death was about 2 seconds. No thrashing, nothing. Just plop, sink, uncurl, die. I'll be picking again tomorrow night, then spreading SlugGo.
