I think that I am feeding my birds too well. I can't remember when I last saw one eating a slug or snail. There have been a lot of them this year. Tidying up one of my shrubs recently, I was amazed to find a tiny snail tucked into the centre of almost every leaf cluster. There was no sign of nibbled leaves, though. Is it a snail nursery, I wonder? Unfortunately, I absolutely hate killing anything, and accidentally stepping on a slug or worm makes me feel really sick. I've tried catching the pesky critters and dumping them on the common land opposite my house, but I think they come straight back again.
I put some marigolds in my garden went to water them in late evening and they were covered in slugs no leaves left. So first thing i thought of was salt, wrong killed everything. Still got loads of slugs. My garden is clay.
I am seriously considering nematodes.
Slugs and snails are defintley attracted to slug pellets. My tactic is to sprinkle pellets over the fence into neighboring gardens
and what about their animals............. or kids ......... I would be absolutely blazing if you did this in my garden. How can you be so irresponsible!!!
and yes - I did tone this comment down!!!
