Like me, my neighbour has been using slug pubs to control slugs in her veg patch. A few weeks ago, having pulled out the plants that the traps were protecting she went to wash out her jars. Finding that one of them had got a bit smelly she left it outside. Time passed. Rain happened. She forgot about the jar until today.
When she brought it over for me to see, it looked like this:
I suppose, where else would you find newts in the garden than in a pub?
Anyway, lazy stereotyping aside, I’ve a feeling that there are better places for newts to be than a small glass jar, so I’ve put them and their jar down by the pond with a couple of sticks as an escape route. Any newt experts out there with a better idea, please get in touch
