I had this friend . . . Collect slugs. Smoosh up in a blender. Thin the 
sludge with water and a little unscented ammonia. Sprinkle around. Her 
claim was that the remaining slugs are repelled by the shredded remains. 
She also swore she bought the extra blender at a yard sale.

For that matter, I've heard that if you eat a nice venison dinner, wait 
a few hours and then go urinate around the garden the rest of the deer 
think a deer-eating predator is in the neighborhood.

Do Not confuse these two techniques!
