How often do slug pellets need applying?
I have two types of slug pellets, one which contains metaldehyde, and the other which is iron based (ferric phosphate). I prefer to use the latter because it poses less potential danger to hedgehogs. Both containers say on the back of them how much to use. But neither give any indication of how often they should be sprinkled onto the ground, ie, how long one application lasts for before another one is needed. And does the duration depend on whether it has rained? Can anyone offer me any advice? (I heard this joke about 'hedgehogs' ... "Why can't they just share the hedge?)"
