I found them this yr nr Ayr. Just a couple, but had read some article long ago and remembered them. From all of your posts, laying black polythene is a good trap? I lay it every yr about now to start warming my veg beds, but can't say that's where I found them. Plenty slugs and snails, though, all fed to the birds! Will birds eat them? Will it harm them if they do? I have noticed less worms in my compost and it has taken longer to decompose this last yr.
Verdun, I agree with you, and I would like to make my own potting compost, but I barely keep up with the needs of my beds with homemade compost. And how do you sterilise home-made potting composts?
