Garden DESTROYED!?

Posted: 19/06/2013 at 12:53

Could it be stone martens? We had stone martens who used to go mad in the garden at night and literally crash their way through the plants crushing everything. They are a real pest here and particularly like to chew cables and rubber fittings under car bonnets, in fact car insurance covers marten damage.

Putting softdrinks on the garden

Well, it might not harm anything, but could certainly attract ants! Just my thoughts, if it was me wouldn't do it (except plain mineral water, use that on my houseplants occasionally).

It's not called catnip for nothing! If you don't like "vermin", don't plant catnip!

If you google "insect eggs" or insect larvae" and select images, you will find lots of sites.
