Safe control of garden slugs

Leaflet giving advice on the safe control of garden slugs.

Slugs and snails are the number one pest problem in many gardens, where our mild and damp climate allows them to thrive. Natural predators like birds, frogs, hedgehogs and ground beetles help to control slugs and snails and should be encouraged in the garden. Something as simple as a pile of rotting logs will entice them in! 

This leaflet gives information on how to protect your garden from slugs and snails, and how to use, store and dispose of slug pellets safely.
