I find that in my garden soil in the allotment a lot of tiny slug eggs and how can I get rid of it as it eats all my patatoes?



About all that you can do is squish 'em when you find 'em, Laylahammam. You might also scatter some of the organic slug control pellets made from iron phosphate, to take care of them after they hatch.

Better to fill a squirt bottle with household ammonia and squirt them when you find them. The ammonia kills the eggs, and doesn't poison the soil, like salt does--it just turns into fertilizer. Don't get the ammonia on any plant leaves, though, since it will create brown spots there.
