Yes Welshonion.

There is something niggling me about this that I can't quite put my finger on.

More research needed.

They are trying to hide things here. The more I look into it, the worse it is sounding.

Nematodes work in the damp warm ground/soil. 

The snails only work over the top of the soil. That is why they are not so affective with snails, but they do pick them up in their travels. 

This is why I like to spray the sludge through a fine membrane, Above the soil and try to get into all the corners, especially when it is wet for a few days.

Don't  panic. 

They are harmless and actually help your plants. If you do not like the look of them , then just run your finger over them and knock them off. 

Please look into the benefits of mycelium it covers 95% of the world.

Pearly and now West highland terriers!!! 

What can I say two of my perfect dogs. One sits on you lap, looking perfect while the other goes out and looks after the home front.  Don't let the westie any ware near a cow plat (after they are washed) or they will be in it!!! they are only good for show on a lead or a stamp.

I remember the stamp but i did live in a sub post office as a kid.



 Fond memories.

I would stick to your terrier. Best deterrent and  rat killer i will ever know. 

Apart from shooting and trapping.

I do not mind that,if they are a problem (as they are).

Some even taste nice ( squirrel) 

What is the terrier called? 

Long may it seek and destroy.

Thanks hun.

It's back to 20 points, I wonder what happened yesterday? 

I was still awarded 100 points and I missed sunday (this time) . That is not like me.

I presume it will be hard to rectify if they have printed sundays numbers again on mondays paper. 

I wonder what happened to the winner?

No come back at this time. I will just have to wait and see 

You are a gem

Did you notice that  Verdun has offered the use of a castle.??? I presume there is a catch!  But we can sue  Verdun later. 

Sorry  Verdun. We would only sue if you are no good at your word and promise, So expect us as we do not forgive or forget!!!
