Hi all i found these tracks on my cabbages can anyone tell me what it is and what i should do i cant find any insects or anything on them




I think you are using far too many slug pellets. Slug pellets attract slugs (and then kill them) so just 3 or 4 will do.

Just 3 pellets would be more than enough to protect this plant!!! Far better not to use pellets at all really, as they kill birds and hedgehogs (as well as dogs and cats). I use beer traps and they work wonderfully (see my photos page if you need to see what they look like and how they work).

I can't see any 'tracks' on the plant.
