Slug Identification


Slugs are sometimes referred to as naked snails. Slugs can be ¾ of an inch to over 6 inches long and can be light yellow, brown, lavender, or purple.


Slugs require moisture to be able to move. They release a slimy mucus substance that helps them move. The mucus dries into a shiny, noticeable trail. Slugs are nocturnal because humidity is higher at night. During the day, slugs hide under weeds, plant debris, mulch, boards, rocks, and ground covers.

Increased moisture creates an increase in slug population. Slugs feed on plants including annuals, perennials, bulbs, ground covers, trees, and shrubs. Slugs can eat seedlings, herbaceous plants, and fruit lying on the ground. Slugs have a strong sense of smell, and they will travel long distances to locate a food source.
