I came across this article on the BBC page looking for slug spotters for a survey.

Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Think it’s something @wild edges could do while he’s out there tracking down his vine weevils 👍

    It's something I could do while sat at the table having my dinner sometimes :#

    Since I have used Nematodes on Lottie for the last 4 years I hardly ever see slugs.
    Everyone is just trying to be Happy.

    I've just been reading an article purporting to have 12 non toxic methods for controlling slugs and snails.

    No 1?  Introduce garter snakes to the garden.

    OK - it's an American site but really?

    Slow worms eat a ton of slugs so maybe you could use those instead?

    Haven't seen any but I hope we have some.  There are Western Whip snakes about but clearly not in winter and not noticeably eating the slugs and snails.
