Slugs

Slugs are  occasional visitors into our homes and whilst unpleasant do no actual damage. Their slime trails can often be seen on floors in the morning.

The presence of slugs inside a house indicates a damp problem of some sort. This could be a leaky appliance, condensation or that the property’s damp proof course is failing.

If the slugs are coming in from outside under a door some relief can be gained by nailing a copper strip, available from any hardware store, across the threshold.

Copper reacts with the slugs’ slime and makes it unpleasant for them to cross.

Slugs are not an issue that can be dealt with by a pest control company.
