Morning slug hunters,
weather here today “Misty” as o looked across the lawn from the bathroom window i could see a mist rising off the lawn and in the distance was a stag in the far field,
it really looked like something out of a horror film,
And to add more damp feeling its forcast thunder this afternoon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But from saturday onwards the weather looks better so lets keep our fingers crossed.

I was looking at some old notes i’d taken ref ants and a cure to get rid of them, one note i’d got from some info says use semaliena pudding mix,
the ants take this back to the nest and once eaten it grows inside the ant and kills the ant (queen ant) once this is done the ants move onto find a new queen.

Anyone heard of this treatment?
