I just have been told that I could use wool pellets to keep slugs and snails away from my plants. (sluggone.com)
Has anybody tried them? If so, was it successful?
I was wondering - if they work - could I use just sheeps fleece wool?
You know I read that as wood pallets and wondered how they worked to stop slugs. Need new reading glasses.
Thank you Ceres, I thought they are quite expensive, that made me think of natural sheep fleece. It is much cheaper, found some on Ebay. I think I give it a go...
The scratchiness should be the same.
No Gemma, my slugs and snails are not that big!!
I will let you know if it's working.
Going to try horse hair as a slug repellent, as they are moulting like mad now, and I have a free supply Will let you know if that works
I tried it last year. Very expensive and didn't go far. The dog thought it was wonderful and broke the "magic circle" several times so all in all a bit of a no no for me.
I promised to let you know how I got on...
I tried "real" sheep's wool, but - I bet the slugs were laughing about the stupid human,while they were crawling over the wool.
They munched a newly planted clematis right to the ground, so I'm back to the snail and slug pellets, not very nice, but the only thing to keep my plants.
It's not worth to pay (more) money for wool/wool pellets
