That sounds like a good idea. As slugs seem to like dark, moist, cool places it might even work without the slug pellets. I will try one with, and one without, and report back.
Have tried this method for the last two days. The first morning it just attracted 2 slugs but this morning was better. The guttering with slug pellets had 6 slugs under it and the one with no pellets had 5. They mostly were attatched to the guttering and so were very easy to remove, I just knocked them off with a stick and into a jar of salty water. Thanks Alan for this useful tip, hopefully my precious plants will survive a bit longer now
I'm not sure this will be useful for slugs - but sounds like it's a tip that will be very useful for gardeners
I shall definitely try this. Thanks for the info.
Very good idea Alan thanks! The gutter would be relatively easy to hide too, once plants start to grow around it
Thank you for this tip. Worth a try
Once I have killed the slugs, by salt water,beer traps and other methods, where do i dispose the remains?
On the compost heap once dead!
Im going to try this one Good bye slugs dont like being cruel but they are a nuisance. thanks Alan
