I just don`t like them!
What do you do to stop them eating your flowers?

Can't remember seeing any over here, probably too hot. Having though snails and Caterpillars, we tend to let them eat, while our son discovers them and learn.
Please have a good new week ahead.

Just put some salt over the leaves. Also put salt on them that they will dehydrate and die.

Put some beer in a small saucer or can. They will climb in and drown.

You can put a saucer of beer in the garden and they will be attracted to it, crawl in, and die. My mom gave me this tip and I have found that whiskey works just as well.

beer works wonders even for snails.

Some salt would work. The picture is beautiful though :)

I don't know what you do, Gunn, but that is a fine photo.

Slugs, I don't know. But snails, we eat them in France!

Some cruel ways to get rid of them suggested here; the beer solution sounds a bit friendlier than the salt one.! :-)

I will do anything: thanks for some of the suggestions!

I've heard of the beer solution but not used it. We have problems with deer eating our flowers. I suppose they might like beer but they're probably cheap drunks and who knows what they'd eat then.
