    :sick: they're the most disgusting, flithy creatures ever!

    but here's my problem...they keep ending up in my kitchen in the night :sick: god knows how, but they're fecking minging and it makes my skin crawl thinking about it.

    last night i came down for a drink and there was a huge fuck off thing just sat in the middle of my kitchen *shudders* so i stuck a bin over it to stop it going anywhere else!

    i'm going to go get some of that expandy foam stuff today and fill in even the tinyest gaps i can find outside, incase thats how they're getting in.

    any ideas how i can stop them coming in? i was thinking of putting a thing of beer at the far end of the garden to attract them to there, but then i'm worried it'll just attract more to here!

    i feel so disgusting thinking about it, like everything's dead dirty :sick:

    Try and find out where they are getting in and put a line of salt down.

    We have them come into our dining room at night too, never see them, but see the line's they leave behind. eurgh. salt works, but u have to keep putting it there, or they come back like they did with us! x

    omg :( salt kills them really harshly. they 'fizz' then you have to clean up the goo, it's rank.

    Egg shells stop them without killing them, as does sandpaper.

    used coffee grounds are good at getting rid or garlic too.

    Scary thing is on average there is 200 slugs per cubic metre of garden and each is capable of producing up to 90,000 "grandchildren"!!!! Not to mention the amount of "children!"
