Slugs require moisture to move around. They release a slimy mucus substance, which they use to move. The mucus dries into a shiny noticeable trail. Slugs are nocturnal because the humidity at night is high from evening rains or irrigation. Slugs hide in the day light under weeds, plant debris, mulch, boards, rocks, and ground covers.

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.


Slugs are sometimes referred to as naked snails. Slugs are 3/4 of an inch to sometimes over 6 inches long and range in color from light yellow, brown, lavender, to purple.

"Chuck's pest control does a great job. A year ago we had a problem with ants coming into the house. We tried different products which did no good and then called Chuck. They are very professional and came out several times during the year to re-treat and make sure we weren't having any more problems. Haven't seen an ant in the house since..."
