    for many years i was blaming squirels or rats for eating new leaves and flower buds , untill i realized the slugs are doing so much damage even they break stems ! whenever i planted seasonal plants there flowering stems are all broken and leaves eaten . i had no idea slugs can b this bad and i cud see there trails in the morning , i did sprayed pesticides with no effect , they dont eat all plants tho , some they like more

    welcome, I just ordered a heron net and hope it works. Otherwise, I'll be asking for more closeups of that wire cover design

    Slugs will eat a plant to the stubby nubs overnight. They are voracious eaters.
