Thanks Nic.. stands to reason.. I go out regularly at night killing slugs with a knife and often see my hogs eating worms but could well miss the small slugs.. but it is the big slugs and snails that killed my tomatoes and almost my potatoes last year. Plently of small ones though but they seem to do less damage where I do catch them in the act.
.. but I have always had hogs and always had slugs and snails and, unless I go out at night with my knife, I cannot grow anything tender in my garden… just have to be careful not to damage the newts which can look surprisingly similar.
My record was over 1000 in a week!
