Are you guys watching the Thingiverse blog? There’s some new activity on there.
I noticed this one earlier: a little hut for your garden that traps slugs and — hmm… — kills ‘em. I’m with Greg on this one, I kinda like slugs. They’re peaceful. But if they’re a nuisance for your garden, make one of these things today and set it out.
If you look at the Thingiverse page for this Slug Trap, you’ll see a little conversation about alcohol and plastic. Since this trap is supposed to use beer to attract the slugs, one commenter wondered if it might degrade over time.
I asked one of our resident materials experts and got an answer: as long as the beverage is less than 8% alcohol by volume, all should be ok! So go on, get rid of some Bud Light and some slugs at the same time.
