I am going to use Deadline this spring as well. I used to use slug bait pellets. However they would break down after the first rain and they were not effective after that. I also would put beer out in saucers and would catch slugs hundreds of those little intoxicated and drowned suckers. But with a real problem that is just putting a band-aid on it. I am looking forward to trying Deadline and thanks for the info Classicfur.
