CapeGoddess -  IDK if expired yeast would work or not.  It has to be "active".  Try it.  You have nothing to lose. 

My mind gets kind of weird at times.  When I dump the beer/yeast pans morning and evening I have this vision in my mind of slugs  rushing to the pans shouting "Beer Party."

They really are sots.

So do you do this when plants are getting completely decimated?  I get some damage, but I think it is pill bugs, on radish seedling, etc.

Pill bugs typically eat decaying matter and very rarely go after living plants.
