It really amuses me to see how many, go out with a torch at night, slug hunting. I thought I was the only one. I didn't try that until I spent £10 on three Mecanopsis. They were completely gone next morning. I found, with a torch, that I had simply dozens of them. I now only use pellets in early spring, before frogs, etc., awake; then out come the "garden" scissors which I find most effective of all. Off with the heads so no slow death and no recovery. Now the problem is not so great. Old gardener.
