Amanda, there are times when slug pellets are useful
agree there should be a warning on them but who reads warnings these days? Car alarms,,house alarms, lorries reversing, etc., are commonplace sounds thaf mean nothing.
i use pellets....sparingly and selectively. A warm humid night is perfect this time of year because they do work then. Not thousands thrown all the garden but tucked under slate or board.
salt thrown onto the soil caz is pointless.....will damage plants for a start. A salt solution to put slugs and snails in, nematodes and considerate use of pellets is the way.
I have posted pictures of hostas without any damage here and I fully expect thus to be the case this year so my way is effective for me
