SLUGS. Is it an all-time record

I haven''t seen one slug in my garden this year - nor any signs of them. They're usually all over the place by now but not one ! Is it the same for anyone else ?



Too dry up here for either slugs or snails. Lovely to see hostas with leaves!

Well you could check after dark, say 10pm but it has been so dry we'r seeing very few Hank.

As we've had barely any rain in the London area and are almost into drought, slugs and snails are conspicuous by their absence - but give it a good downpour or two and they'll be out in their hundreds I imagine!

I would imagine so, we had rain overnight so lets see if they appear...

I thought it was too good to be true, I'll take my torch out late tonight to check.
