What do slugs eggs look like?
« on: July 29, 2010, 21:42 »
Sorry for all the questions tonight but I have now finished no work until 16th.  I am going away with the family Saturday so I spent 3 hours this evening and have come back with loads of questions.  It is funny that by posting I become an experienced member but hardly ever have answers.
Time waits for no man and I can't wait for growth.

A typical picture but there can be a slight difference in colouring

Thought they would look like that do I just crush them or leave them on top of the soil for birds?

Even our lab that eats everything won't touch them.  I will just have to squeeze them with my fingers YUK!

Brilliant & accurate picture Peapod - I wondered what those 'pearls' were - although I'm vegetarian and don't like killing things needlessly, there are some things which I won't negotiate on - slug eggs and head lice and nits - uuuggghhhh  :tongue2:

they could be slug or snail eggs... if you leave them out in the sun they will desicate, or just break them with your boot!  Fish like them if you collect them and cuck them in a pond stocked with fish.
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature? the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter. -   Rachel Carson

Couldn't he just pour salt on the eggs???? Or does that only work on the slug snail itself????
