Natural Slug Repellent

I want a natural slug repellent that doesn't kill the slugs, but just deters them. I don't want the bad karma of killing them just because they're hungry.

Try sprinkling salt where they go, or put sharp rocks or sticks in their path and they will not crawl over them.

Copper tape/strips and also copper compounds will repel them, not kill them. And also check out how to make your yard less hospitable to slugs in the first place:

Slugs hate to cross over crushed eggshells! It is worth a try

Try chopped egg shells and fresh coffee grounds. I also heard Sluggo works and is not harmful to other animals. Don't worry about killing them, there won't be any bad Karma. There's only blessings and curses and if you get rid of them anyway you can, you'll be blessed!

I tried the crushed egg shells around my pumpkin plants and it works like a charm. I have not seen any slugs on my plants and the egg shells look kinda cool too. From a distance, they look like crushed white rock. Give it a try! It works!
