I am going to have to use something else, they can't get Sluggo Plus in until June 21, all of my little plants will be gone by then. I have had one suggestion, some stuff from Bonide, Eight, it has permethryn in it. I do not like to use this type of thing, but I have lost just about everything. This is the most disappointing start I have ever had. Rock
BTW- everything I put inside a milk jug or plastic cup barrier has not been touched. I do not know why it works, but it does work, just not 100% of the time.

Rock, I'm probably suggesting what you have already tried - small garden or nursery stores? The Sluggo Plus is good because it takes care of slugs/snails without being a danger to pets like the old stuff that looked liked dog food. And, you know dogs, they will eat or try almost anything. When you do locate SP, buy 2 containers so you are ready for next spring. I guess another obvious thing you have tried is a good search and dispatch at night time. I feel your pain.

Rock, go to Ace Hardware and check out the EcoSmart products. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.  Also, in the past I've used diatomaceous earth with great success and for some reason forgot about it this year.

Post  GrowRunner 6/14/2016, 12:50 am

I'm going to ring in here and say that my biggest pest, year after year, has been earwigs, believe it or not, and I think they could be a very real possibility as they absolutely love beans plants, in my experience.  Once those first big huge leaves come out from the seed, the next day, those beautiful leaves will often look like lace, and if I don't go out that very night, the next day, the new bean sprout will be nothing but a poor looking little stub.  I have found that earwigs are especially attracted to beans, squash/cucumber plants, okra, rhubarb, and marigolds in my garden.  I have to to midnight patrols, which I'm still doing, almost every night after planting out any new transplants and when seeds start to sprout through spring and early summer.  I have a million pill bugs too, but I rarely catch them in the act of chewing on anything I don't want them to, and when I do, it's typically on the stem of a new seedling at ground level and not up in the leaves.

For the earwigs, I fill up a 30 oz spray bottle with some water and a few squirts of dish soap and with my headlamp on, I go out and gun down any earwig I see.  A squirt or two usually kills them off within several seconds.  I'm seeing less and less of them now, and that's when I know I can soon start sleeping through the night.  I do use Sluggo Plus a little bit here and there too, but it doesn't seem to hold back the earwigs and pillbugs as I still see them roaming around on it.  The pill bugs generally keep to the ground, while the earwigs still climb up on top of the leaves where they're caught in the act of having a feast of the leaves.  Next year, I'm going to start setting out some traps in each bed prior to planting anything in them, in hopes of getting a head start on minimizing damage from any of these veggie killers.

I also have problems with leafminers and my spinach every year. And I'm now seeing lots of baby little grasshoppers out in my garden when out on patrol and that has me worried as I haven't seen many in past years.  I've been spraying them down too, and they seem to die from it like the earwigs do, so I'm hoping that I'm putting a good dent in their numbers and don't see a huge number of adult hoppers as the year progresses.  I've also got an infestation of root weevils wreaking havoc on my strawberry plants, so I've been plucking hundreds of those off my plants at night and disposing of them.

Post  BeetlesPerSqFt 6/14/2016, 6:58 am

This article mentions ways to trap them: http://www.rodalesorganiclife.com/garden/how-control-earwigs
Emptying a trap into soapy water might be more efficient than squirting them one by one (and result in less soap in the garden.) Some quick searching online suggests pillbugs will also eat oatmeal, so it may be a two-fer-one trap. I'll probably try it later this week in my covered beds. The cover (especially with any breeze, and there's usually at least a breeze) makes it hard to look for pests, and I know there are both earwigs and pillbugs in the tall one. Who knows, maybe I can cut down on the millipede population, too.
