once a week sweep a small part of the beech car park, take the sand to allotment,spread around the base of the raised beds,in the raised beds use the up turned gutter tunnel and jam jar way,its working a treat,cheap builders sand and cheap cooking salt also works, they don't like it,rains a pain though.

Maybe it should be shown by taking this silly game off that's on far too often, the one where they kick a ball ,then falling over, then pretend to be hurt sort of thing, and please don't tell me its football ,i remember what football used to look like and its not that.

Hi Gill a short time ago a lady ( i tried to find her name but can,t) placed this advise
on our site and we are using it and a big yes,, place the slug pellets into the top af a jam jar,place this under a 10/12 inch tunnel of rain guttering (plastic is quite cheap)a brick on top or fasten it down so hedgehogs cant get to them leave one or both ends open and there you go it worked for us after 2 nights and gets better every day,good luck Alan4711

Midges/mosquito help!!!

Hi Luubear last year on the allotments i was bitten and it was very painful and some bites really swelled up , we were advised that Skin so soft by Avon works so we tried it and yes it worked just great, now almost the whole allotment use it we also found that our forces abroad use it,(true) Avon don't claim it to be anything but a skin care product but i can tell you for midges including huge horse flies it worked better than everything else ,we now keep it in the allotment shed and at home and its not expensive, if you dont get a reaction from it and no one here did it might be worth trying good luck
