So I was at a loss with my freshly sprouted plant's looking more like doily's than leaves. I was watching my hard work go to the slugs when I got fed up and wet to the store and bought some slug and snail bait. At first I saw no change.. I was still losing plants right down to stubbs for a while. But I was persistent, and continued to apply the bait. Now I think Iv got the upper hand. I can see that there are still a few new nibbles here and there but for the most part I have made a good dent in the numbers!!!! And I have found a new plan too! In a week or so I am going to stop putting out poison... because I have bought myself some mercenary 5 adorable chicks are growing as we speak in a brooder just itching to get outside and eat those slimy little buggers!!!
I'm half way tempted to stop now and give them a false sense of hope, maybe fatten them up a bit before I release the chickens!!!
Oh revenge... it's awesome!
