Yes, radishes nibbled even underground by tiny black slugs, but hey it's not embarrassing, no matter how, we wash them before eating them.

At home, this year, I struggle. Despite hedges, despite a hut, the hedgehog seems to have abandoned me.

At the beginning of the garden, there is 7 or 8 years, I spent a worm at the rotovil. Involuntarily, of course. I had just "ratiboiser" a sort of hedge-wasteland that had formed between my parcel and that of the neighbor, on a fence that had collapsed ... Damage pity damage ...

I continue to bait with the sow thistle or "old lettuce" ... As we continue to have storms (my tanks are full again), I was able to shoot in broad daylight!

General view: above, a foot of zucchini attacked; at the bottom, a lettuce on the way to rot with a slug on it:

The slug in detail:

The general "device": plants to preserve and "waste" lettuce or sow thistle nearby:

And the famous laiteron particularly attractive for orange slugs:

And the "model" of slug in question (on the block):

Yes, it's one of his specialties, underground attacks!

I'm thinking of something, because it works for me even when I sleep these stories of slugs that eat everything!

that night in my sleep, I had a dream, not anything erotic ... whatever ... it's a little phallic slugs anyway : Wink:

I was pursued by a flock of slugs who rebelled against me, I ran with my pickle pliers in hand and in front of me the fairy melusine appeared and threw a blue powder on the slugs that evaporated in a blue cloud , it was wonderful :P
(I hope it was not the metaldehyde fairy, I always confuse them, but sometimes I'm tempted!)

so I thought about something ... why not burn them or heat them with my old thermal weed killer? pass the flame quickly on slugs and wet hay after a rain for example, avoiding too close to the plants of course where there, manual collection is preferable :D
would wet hay catch fire, passing the torch quickly of course? I want to test tonight ...

Yes it seems like a good idea. However, with the risk of attracting slugs that were not close to your plants because they seem to guide with an olfactory system and can move several meters per day all the same. That's why I stopped using slug traps even though it worked well. But if you restock and watch all the time it must work.

Yes ... But at some point, anything in the "olfactory range" (decaying beer or lettuce) should be "cleaned up" ...

The ideal, of course, being to combine this with a "sanitary corridor": a belt around the kitchen garden where ducks runners or hens circulate ...

Small result on yesterday's pickup after a good rain. An 20ain in the morning, and 140 in the evening of which 1 cagouille (A snail). A high score that I would have done well : Evil:
Small passage this morning, a dozen slugs, and 5 cagouilles, the latter would not it be taking the vacant places : Twisted:
Denis
In fact the cagoys are endangered at home, I am rather satisfied to see them again, and in addition to butter go is excellent : Wink:

The main risk is with the flow of plants! Purchases, exchanges ....

For the moment, even if there are a hundred reports, we can neglect.

After, two things one: or bestiau acclimates well, etc., and it can invade very quickly. And without enemies, become very quickly a problem. Like the old beetle, the Asian ladybug more recently, or the Drosophila Suzuki (the red fruit that "flow") even more recently ...

Or it does not acclimate well and can also regress ... Its toxicity or its amazing scissiparity ("cut" to reproduce) does not presume its ability to occupy an ecological niche at home ...

Note that two or three years ago, we had already talked about a parasitic worm that attacked our earthworms, but it did not seem to me that it was the same ????? Should not we first check if it's not a "fake news" ???? [not that it exists, somewhere in a region, or in a "lab" at home; but he spreads himself]
