cherry slug & horticulture tape

Postby zaza » Sun Apr 20, 2014 11:02 pm

Hello - I've been using a spray on the slugs which is good but they keep reappearing. Someone said to me to put horticulture tape on the base of the trunk as they live in the ground and crawl back up. I just assumed that those in the industry knew so asked for this at a large nursery today and they had no idea what i was talking about. i see someone on this forum uses vaseline. does this work? and how often does it need to be applied?

cheers
