    I suffer with the damn things I binned any compost in pots. I have found out they dont like ground coffee so I sprinkled some among my potatoes which they love which made me think of a decoy. I just couldnt get lettuce to grow so i cut up a potato, got bamboo skewers from the cookery isle in my supermarket, I pierced the potato with the skewer and slightly buried it, using the skewer I knew exactly where I had sunk the potato. I replace potato chunk when I remember. Well anyway it worked I now can grow my lettuce. If you find anything that gets rid of them let me know. They dont like sugar or boiling water either. I was planning making them a strong sweet cup of coffee.
