Facts About Slugs:
Slugs can cause huge damage to vegetation and are capable of consuming several times their bodyweight in a very short period of time.
Most eat decaying vegetation, but their favourite plants include Hostas, Marigolds, Dahlias, Tulips, Lavenders and Snapdragons, and of course, tender young salad crops.
Although active throughout the year, slugs are particularly troublesome in Spring and Autumn when warmer weather combined with damp conditions encourages them out.
Slugs dislike rain, but they need to keep moist as they require water for reproduction and movement so are more active when it is wet and emerge as soon as rain stops.
Slugs prefer to live in cool, damp, shady places among plants and like to crawl into crevices or beneath stones, pots, plastic, etc.
The best time to hunt for slugs is 2 – 3 hours after sunset as they tend to feed at night.
Mature slugs are hermaphrodites and are able to breed throughout the year, laying anything between 20 – 100 eggs.
