slug clear liquid metaldehyde

I found that by using the liquid, I could spray it around the beds onto the concrete and not on the soil - therefore I imagine I was causing LESS damage to the soil that way?

I need to know if there is a natural cure or deterrent

Up to now my husband has had the unenviable task of manually scraping the eggs off the branches.

This is the first year we have had it and it has appeared on a bush which was moved to a different part of the garden.

Is there a chance that it could have moved over from a different sort of plant near to that new position in the garden

Thanks Dove from above

I'll look out for that!

I used slugclear liquid up until last year, and it really worked.  I had a cat who was very prone to eating slug pellets, so I had to use something that was invisible, and found it was a lot better than the pellets, forming a solid barrier around the flower beds which lasted 2 to 3 days at a time, even through light rain.

Now I am cat-less this year, we went back to pellets, and the slugs and snails have invaded my gardens big time!

Is there a "glut" of molluscs this year, or am I not putting enough down?.  Tried to find a stockist of the liquid in Sheffield, to no avail, so will try the nature friendly pellets as mentioned here.  Does anyone know what shops stock those or the liquid?
