slugs love dog food,(and before you say it so do rats)if you put a little pile in the same place each night  you can scoop up the offending gritters and dispose of them to the green heaven,do pick dog food and replace next evening and you will get rid of a few,but you need a army of hedgehogs,frogs,toads,birds and beer traps.

There are lot of dis-tasteful people about who do despicable things to humans and animals,I hope one day they will get justice met out on them.I have seen to the results of poachers and the like.My mother had a badgers set in her field that had been there for decades,my brother heard voices one night and next morning the sett had been dug out and badgers no-more.

What's the weather like in your area?
