do slugs lay their eggs beneath the ground to hatch and do they eat spring bulbs?



Yes. No, but they do eat the emerging shoots rather than the bulbs themselves and it is more likely snails than slugs.

well I'd say yes and yes as I have found small slugs in bulbs. both snails and slugs lay their eggs in the soil. little blighters.

Just because they may be found inside a bulb does not mean that they have eaten their way in, only that they have taken advantage of a hole to move into a safe moist home.
