thanks Shazza1 for the garlic water idea, I'm definately going to give that one a try.
I had loads of slugs in my compost bin last year, the black ones are good for the compost bin apparently, prefering rotting matter to fresh green growth, so if I find any I put them in the compost bin. By the time the compost was ready the slugs had all gone. Had they died with nothing else to eat, or had they just buggered off elsewhere? Will my homemade compost now be full of slug eggs? I have a real problem killing any pests in the garden, even slugs. All the ones I find in the garden go into the brown council recycling compost bin, so go live at the dump. I am worried that I am just sending the problem elsewhere.
