What would you like to do?
In a glass jar or tank- they aren't that big and the glass walls are too slippery to climb. They like soft veggies and dandelion leaves- a few sticks to climb wouldn't be all …too bad. Put some plastic wrap over the top, tape down for lid or use a rubber band. Poke air holes in every centimeter block for ventilage. Put water drops on food and leaves- will prevent them from drying and shriveling up to death :P
They have what is known as a liquid skeleton, this means that is uses liqid to push it like a worm. I hope this helped ;)
Slugs are really easy to take care of a few things they need to stay alive and happy are, 1: Food, they eat a variety of fruits, veggies and plants but be careful what plant…s you give them, some can be toxic. 2: A damp place to live, because slugs are covered in slime they need a wet area to live in so their slime never drys and they stay nice and wet. 3: They also need water, depending on how many slugs you have you might want to use simple things like a water bottle cap or the top of a jar to hold water. 4: Some slugs can get lonely, if you have just one slug during mating season it may want to find a mate so a simple slug from the wild would do Because there are no female or male slugs. 5: Enjoy your new Mollusk pet.

Coffee grounds are not very effective against slugs. The gritty texture and taste seem to be the only thing that bothers them. On the other hand they will happily drown themse…lves in beer, stale or otherwise.
well there are a couple of tricks you can use. 1; sprinkle salt like 4 inches away from the bottom of it but u have to redoo it every time it dews or like rains. 2; you …can buy a bug/pest powder from any gardencenter and you just sprinkle it on. 3; "save the best for last", you take a red plasic cup cut it so it can only hold about an inch of liquid and then fill it with beer.
Put slug repellent on your plants after planting them.
Yes! they most certainly do!
you can use slug pellets and sometimes if you use vinegar it can kill them all in one.
Slugs are infectious! technically you shouldn't be keeping them but if you have an old shoe, fill it with dirt for your slug pet to live in.
Putting something coppery or scratchy in theirpath is one way to keep slugs from crossing into the garden. Slugsapparently receive the equivalent of electric shocks from cont…actwith copper, and their insides and outsides will dry from contactwith salt or tear from interactions with diatomaceous earth orsand.
you must have a leak or moisture build up
It's best to keep them in fish tanks with ample space for them depending on there size you can also keep them in a gallon ice cream tub with holes poked on the lid if they are… small and if you can't afford a fish tank. I've owned slugs/snails before.
