Understanding Slug and Snail Damage

Gardens are a haven for nature’s creatures, but not all visitors come with good intentions. Slugs and snails, with their insatiable appetite for plants, can wreak havoc on carefully tended gardens. These slimy critters are a common menace, particularly in the UK’s mild and damp climate, and their numbers can quickly escalate, causing significant damage to plants.

The average garden can host an astonishing 15,000 slugs, each capable of munching away at foliage and tender shoots. This relentless feeding can result in unsightly damage to ornamental plants and devastating losses in the vegetable patch. As gardeners battle to protect their green spaces, one crucial weapon in the fight against these voracious pests is Slug Control Mesh.
