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
