Slugs will be out more when it's raining or has recently rained; the lid helps the water run off so the rain won't dilute the beer and make the trap ineffective.

I've printed several of these at 130% scale in PLA, which is just about the limit for the Replicator build volume. They work really well.
The solution may vary for different slug populations. Where I am, I mainly content with a legion of tiny slugs, varying form the size of a grain of rice to the size of a large multivitamin, with just a few larger ones on occasion. I will generally empty a trap this size once per day, or at least check it each day.
For larger slugs, I imagine you would want something bigger. Note that this design is also parametric (to some extent), so working from the scad file you could adjust its dimensions to suit your needs and printer ability.
