Hi Rampanr climber.
About three years ago, we had loads of slugs, snails in our family garden.
I tried to get rid of slugs,snails for ages and in my experience throwing them over the fence does not work,as they keep coming back.
I don't use poisons,
So what i did was get an ice cream tub, put it on the path and fill with boiling kettle water, used a poop scoop to scoop the slugs up and dropped them in,(snails just pick them up by their shells) leave the tub until cool anuff to pick up.
Then i looked around the garden for a bare plot, dug a deep hole 2ft wide,2ft to 3ft deep, just empted the tub into the hole and put anuff soil back in the hole to cover them up.I did the ice cream tub thing, covering them up with abit of soil everyday for aweek,then planted a nice shub on top.
Never had much trouble with them again since.
It saved bagging them up and helping the already over filled landfill sites.
Now i know alot of people may think that i'm barbaric,evil, everthing else under the sun and everbody is entitled to their own opinion.
But just to let people know, i have a dog that i love with all my heart and he is getting on now and i don't want him to get lung worm.
I also lost hundreds of plants.
I hope this helps .
