Guernsey , hello , no I don't bury them , lay them on the side and the slugs just crawl in , have virtually no slug 🐌 damage at allotment 

I have a Hosta bed in the garden and I put grit down and it seems to stop them , however , I do encourage the birds and are always finding empty snail 🐌 shells 

Must be lucky
