Hi Hastfan yes I can understand why you would say that and no I won't take offence, what I should have made more clear was that while I have collected 80 to100 that wouldn't be EVERY night, usually it's the first couple of times I go "slugging" as I call it on the arrival of spring. What happens then is I have a garden with very few slugs although I still go "slugging" but on less occasions and collecting less and less.
i have tried slug pellets, beer traps even Nematodes and nothing works more effectivley than night collection but as I say with less and less frequency.
At this time of year I don't need to go at all, because everything in my garden is growing beautifully.
