Slugs in bait stations

installed new stations in april of last year. at 3 month inspection slugs had invaded all of the bait stations(not the cartidges. since these were new stations i don't understand the not properly maintained explanation from the same question answered on 5.6.13. I just checked station 1/21/15. Most now are free of slugs (winter). Do slugs mess up the monitoring. Should i do something the next time I check them? or surround the stations with diatomaceous earth or some other method of control


We do not recommend to apply an insecticide around the bait stations. Slugs can normally enter under the soil cover. If the bait stations are not maintained an over abundance of slugs can enter. We recommend to clean out the station and rectify the gap under the soil cover.
