Be afraid of slugs and snails this summer


Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 8:00am 17th April 2017.

Slugs and snails - that is what you need to look out for this summer.

They have made their way back into poll position in RHS’s ‘Top Pest’ list. 

The experts at weed, feed and control brand Neudorff are predicting nothing less than a slug explosion in the coming weeks, with up to 10 billion hatching and wreaking havoc in our gardens.
“A mild winter with minimal frosts will produce a glut of slug eggs.

"Once hatched, the young slugs will be looking to feed their ferocious appetites and will head straight for the tender foliage of young plants.

"We are advising gardeners in and around Surrey to be fully prepared with slug controls at the ready, to ensure their hard work in the garden is preserved,” said Jude Beharall from Neudorff."

Home remedies for getting rid of slugs and snails include coffee and salt...
