compost bin alive with slugs

Posted: 14/10/2012 at 21:21

Its a vain hope Alan! When I say my compost bin is full of slugs, I don't mean I can see them (as one normally would and would be an acceptable part of the process) I mean it is a moving mass of slugs and little else.  I am not remotely forgiving (despite my statement...Sorry Berghill!)

Thanks Berghill, I'll try to be more forgiving!

They are canine (of a kind) after all but, as you say, when they're getting Pedigree C**m. They're in great condition too!

Thanks Rose but frightened of the rest of the food chain.  We're on old agricultural land but it very established residential and a near neighbour of mine feeds the foxes to encourage them! Pity the foxes won't eat the slugs - cut out the middle man

It surely has.  They eat move between the flowers and the herbs - they like a bit of garnish! Coriander is their favourite.

Thanks sotongeoff.  I know it's all part of the cycle, I'm quite happy for all the other little critters to be in there, I'm just particularly prejudiced against slugs! They've always been a particular problem and, after the weather we've had this year, it's worse than ever.  Even planting 'slug resistant' plants is a waste of time, there's nothing they won't eat in my garden.

My compost bin is full of slugs, to such an extent that I'm wondering whether any of it will be usable as it will be full of eggs. Any suggestions?

Bye bye Clematis Cassis

Thanks so much for that.  I've had a beautiful new 'Parisienne' go very sad on me, so I'll do that and hope for the best.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to Marion, Moe and all.  I'm just waiting for it to stop raining here in the West Mids so that I can get out and dig a brand new bed.
