Slugs Entering Your Conservatory Or House.
Slugs can be a common problem for gardeners, and they can sometimes find their way into conservatories or houses. Here are some steps gardeners can take to prevent slugs from entering their conservatory or house:
- Keep the area around the conservatory or house clean and tidy. Slugs are attracted to dark and damp areas, so removing any debris or clutter around the area can help discourage them from entering.
- Seal any cracks or gaps in the walls or foundation of the conservatory or house. Slugs can enter through even the smallest openings, so it’s important to make sure that any entry points are sealed.
- Install a barrier around the perimeter of the conservatory or house. This can be done using materials such as copper tape or mesh, which slugs are less likely to cross.
- Use slug repellents around the perimeter of the conservatory or house. There are various natural and chemical repellents available that can help keep slugs away.
- Use traps or baits to catch slugs before they enter the conservatory or house. There are various types of traps and baits available, including beer traps and slug pellets, which can be effective in controlling the slug population.
- Use physical barriers such as gravel or sharp sand around the perimeter of the conservatory or house. Slugs find it difficult to move across rough or sharp surfaces, so this can be an effective way of keeping them out.
By following these steps, gardeners can prevent slugs from entering their conservatory or house and protect their plants and property from damage.
