I’ve seen only about half a dozen slugs Altogether so far this year, but when I transplanted my small lettuce from a tray in the greenhouse into one of my raised beds that changed altogether. Fortunately I had scattered slug pellets around because in the morning there were 7 huge dead slugs and 3 smaller ones lying around.
Had they been waiting All this time for me to put them out ?



No they will have been out foraging for weeks but you had put pellets down so they found those instead of making it home.

They were banqueting in my garden during your lull

Thanks for the replies, there were only 4 big ones and 1 small one this morning so I think I’m winning.
