think I'd nip along a pull wool off the barbed wire first before i splashed out.

Let us know what the product looks like, as we have some well hard determined slugs round here.

What about using bran? Has any one out there had success? I'm told they head straight for it and that it bloats them to death! If it does that would certainly do it for me. Jan :twisted:

I donno, in my little brain, when i tried this one year, the birds eat them all before any slugs, might have been putting it out wrong time of day though. :?

Just one point.
Your supposed to put them round the plant, what when you need to hoe?
Come spring and the weeds are rampant I can see them having to be replaced quite often.

seems to be a roaring success, it works :D
no slug damage or holes of any kind..altho it was a tenner for the tub and that did 2 rows of cabbages.
so quite expensive, however there is a another company that do a product called growaid which looks the same and is cheaper.
so if u dont want to use slug pellets this is the thing....but slug wool and slug pellets will provide rock solid slug security i`m thinking :D

cheaper version here that ive not tried but it looks exactly the same at half the price.
