Having an allotment plot, I’m not a great lover of slugs and spend a lot of time making deterrents and traps to keep them away from my crops. I was disturbed to read about a new variety of so called “killer slug” that it seems could be making an appearance. The slug which appears to have been imported on salad leaves from Spain can grow up to five inches long and eats among other things other slugs. It seems the coming year, then may be another battle with the slugs.
