I love to use beer traps towards the center of my raised beds. However, my first line of defense are my team of ducks. Not only are they adorable as they waddle around on patrol, but they keep the slugs from ever getting into the beds. I don't let my chickens do this work because they will destroy a bed of lettuce in a matter of minutes. Ducks don't really munch on the people food. My next natural helper that I will add this summer are Guinnea Hens. They snap bugs right out of the air. I am hoping they help with flies and such near the goat yard.
