In my large garden the thing that causes me the most heartache and time is slugs and snails (pukekos follow close behind). They have loved the wet weather over winter – I think thousands of them roamed my garden. It’s warming up but that doesn’t mean the end of them.
The easiest way to deal with slugs and snails is to put down bait but it’s something I try to avoid because of puppies and other wildlife that might eat it or the dead slugs. Also the toxins end up in the soil and in contact with the veggies which can’t be good. I’ve tried lots of ways to stop them eating my plants and I know I’m not alone in trying to solve this problem.
