Re: 2014 Snail Hunting Season Now Officially Open!

I found a cache of slugs under a pot I moved and a snail on the grass this morning. I know there are more out there.

Re: 2014 Snail Hunting Season Now Officially Open!

142 slugs last night!!!!!

I thought they moved on! I've seen maybe 5 slugs after the masses dwindled. I was naive!

They're tearing up my big marigolds. I'm starting some bush bean seeds, beets, turnips and lettuces.... I wasn't nervous, but now I am.

I'm not sure what my count is, but I'm high alert!

I found a dozen slugs in the roots of one potted plant and two African snails in broad daylight. Imagine what I would find it I actually went out at night with a flashlight. I need to get more slug bait.
