Not sure what the BBC is complaining about there are alot less slugs around here than this time last year probably due to all the cold spring weather.

Either way I am not taking any chances and will continue to trial anti slug measures until I get some ducks. Sadly most of the popular idea have a few flaws with them, like they dont work if its wet!

Has anyone one tried this pine nut spray out?

What has always worked well for me is encouraging carnivorous behavior in leopard slugs. I find all the slugs in my garden, place them in a 5 gallon bucket. Seal it so they can't get out but still breathe. Those that live a week are obvously carnivorous and get released.
