  1. Don’t get me started. Our garden has been plagued by marauding molluscs this summer and despite rearing frogs in a pond, beer, my wife standing outside yelling ‘GO AWAY YOU NAUGHTY MOLLUSCS!’, picking off the little buggers by hand and so on and so forth, they just laugh at us and bring their friends to gorge on our pea plants etc. We have finally FINALLY had to resort to slug pellets, and it’s a right bugger sitting outside all night with slug pellets and a pea-shooter waiting for the molluscs to emerge, I can tell you. They might not be very big, but YOU try to dislodge them with a projectile weapon from a distance in complete darkness.


    1. Have you tried beer traps? Of course, that might not work with your dogs around as they might get drunk! But we’ve used beer traps at our allotment with great success. Just put a long, slim jar in the ground, its top level with the soil’s surface and pour some cheap beer into it. You’ll find the next morning that there are about a dozen or more slugs or snails floating in it. Works a treat.
