hi please welcome a newbie. Can anyone help with slugs coming indoors. I don't use chemicals and can't use beer or salt because I have free range chickens outside and free range dogs inside. We live in an old house on the marshes near the wash so everywhere is damp, ideas would be appreciated. Lovely site I'm glad I found it.

Hello and welcome to our forum.  Can't help you with the slugs I'm afraid, although I do sympathise......in our last house we also had slugs coming indoors when it was wet outside.....never did find out where they were getting in!  Horrible things, bad enough having to deal with them in the garden, never mind about indoors.

How about putting a post in our Introductions section, telling us a bit about yourself?  We have several members who keep chickens, and of course dogs!

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

Hello Susan, and welcome to the forum.

Like the other ladies, I can't help, except that perhaps inviting the chickens in to where there are slugs - I thought they eat them? Don't they? Hedgehogs too, enjoy a slug or two!! laugh 

I had to laugh at this Q&A page - inviting you to dig a trench and put salt into it, inspect each evening, and put a notice out to deter them- yeah right, they can read that???? big_laugh  big_laugh
