Last week, BugLife Conservation Charity warned of an invasion of “sleepless slugs” this year.

The organisation suggested that 2016 will see an increased number of slugs due to last year’s wet summer and the warmest winter on record.

Slugs normally hibernate when temperatures drop and stay low. However, this year the temperatures never really dropped which means that slugs have been growing in number all winter long. The warm winter also meant that plants started growing earlier giving the slugs a larger food source and therefore making them bigger.

This could cause devastation to British gardens.

A few weeks ago we wrote two blog posts that could save your garden in the fight against slugs and snails this year!
