Tips on combatting slugs and snails
If you are squeamish you will not want to touch the slugs with your bare hands this will leave a slimy film over your fingers, try using a spade or trowel instead to scoop them up. Always try and water in the morning! This is because slugs and snails mainly come out at night when the soil is dark and moist if you were to change to watering in the morning, as the day goes on, the soggy patches have a chance to dry up, which the slugs don’t like and therefore will move into someone else’s garden! Attracting birds into your garden is always a good thing not only do they help to keep your bug population down they are pretty to watch as well.
