I have a small holding with an electric fence around which keep foxes out from my chickens and rabbits away from my veggies. I used slug pellets on my veg patch earlier this year for the first time. While digging spuds I noticed my Parson Russell (long legged Jack) eating the pellets. I politely (shouted) at him and he stopped, all was well for an hour or two but then he went into spasm and started foaming at the mouth. Realizing that the pellets were the problem we contacted our vet who advised we should get him into the surgery asap. Upshot was he was treated and put on a drip over-night. Thankfully he made a complete recovery but the vet advised that a teaspoon can kill a large dog!I have been looking through the various garden catalogues. Has anybody used nematodes for keeping the slugs down? I would like to get away from using slug pellets. any thoughts?
