I have come to the conclusion that the only way that is working to get rid of my infestation is to stalk the nasty slime ridden monsters and kill them off.

I have been picking whole handful's of individual lettuces, its vial but the most vial thing is coming indoors and having to wash off the slime.

I use salt and washing up liquid followed by a sponge scourer. Has anybody got a better way to dissolve and wash off the slime?

A handful of dog biscuits and a dog are pretty efficient.

Swarfega - works on just about anything.

10/07/2014 at 16:06

Even the dog.

Gardenmaiden This might make me sound stupid but i have heard of swarfega but have no idea what it is . What is it?

Swarfega is a dream! You get it at most DIY stores (and Halfords) for cleaning the hands of people who do dirty jobs (mainly mechanics, engineering, fabrication...) Its a heavy duty hand cleaner with gritty beads in that help remove the dirt.

We buy it in bulk here! It even cleans bouncy castles that no other detergent could even touch the dirt!

Now i know what it is, its mechanics gritty hand cleany stuff at least thats what i have always called it.

Anything greasy i always tell the kids sugar and soap will do it , it makes mechanics gritty hand cleany stuff. oh I sound dumb today !!!!

Bekkie, if you read this don't you dare buy any !!

Clari is it still green and like something from ghostbusters ?

10/07/2014 at 16:37

We use the orange stuff KEF as its more delicate. The green stuff is still around though and much better to use if you need to involve washing in the shower with it!

Any gritty hand cleaner suggested, sugar and oil is good.

BUT NOT THE DOG BISCUIT METHOD, you risk having your pet infected with Lungworm!

Sorry, I was expecting quite a different reaction to the dog licking biscuit suggestion.

pansyface I think a bit of dog licking would work very well unfortunately no dog maybe the neighbours cat would do horrible thing keeps killing birds in my garden

I love the smell of swarfega. My dad always used it when he came home from work when he worked at making printers and photocopiers.

I remember many years ago my eldest son getting ready for the school disco. Shouts downstairs. "Thanks for the hair gel mum" "What hair gel" I shout back" "The one in the bathroom cupboard" .

Ever tried getting swarfega out of a12 year olds hair?

How funny!!!

Sorry if it sounded stern but slugs and snails a very real threat to our pets.

Feeling very protective just now as our family dog is on her final days.
