A chicken drowned in it after we opened up the gate in the fall. Lesson learned. Ducks would still need to be fed for half the year on food we cant grow (Canada) but it does bring up the idea of bringing in a bunch of ducks on a temporary basis to thin down the initial infestation. Maybe do a "crop" of ducks. Would ducks grow fast enough in the sping to tackle slugs and then be of a harvestable size by October?
Someone suggested a product called Sluggo. Supposedly it would keep us organic. Anyone have any experience with it?
Has anyone had experience with the seaweed option?

Often planted by mesculns, arugula, squash and spinach the wasabi greens will be riddled with holes of all sizes whereas the other plants leaves will be near perfect. I think I purchased them from West Coast Seeds years back and have collected them since. They selfseed like crazy, don't bolt in summer and sprout in early spring providing a long season.
For us they have become the must have plant in all our greenhouses.
