Our piggies live in an outside hutch. It is quite large, and is on legs, so off the ground. I went to take their bedtime hay out last night and there were 2 massive fat slugs in their hutch - yuck! I want to make sure it never happens again, but don't like the idea of putting pellets round the hutch just in case. Any suggestions what I can use to deter slugs and snails from sneaking into the hutch?
YY copper tape round the legs of the hutch and round the edges where they are likely to get in. And you could put a beer pond (they drown but I'm sure its a happy death) sink a shallow container into the ground and top up with beer. Drown the slugs not the pigs , obvs
They are horrible slimey creatures <boak> . Our path after rain is covered in snails, DD and I wince (and schreech ) when we step on them in the dark Crunch
They won't bother the bunnies as much as they bother you. I'd put the copper tape around the bottom of the run - all the way round. The slugs will be sliming their way through the mesh, so if you tape round, it should stop them and won't affect the buns.
