The gardener's answer to Britain's number one and number two horticultural pests
Advantages subheadings
Slugbandit> What it doesn't
Slugbandit won't kill anything - not even slugs or snails! [Unless they are small].

There are absolutely no poisons involved. Your pets will be safe! The beneficial creatures such as birds, frogs, toads, newts, ground beetles and hedgehogs will also be safe in your garden and free to feed on the pests.

There are no ineffective methods involved such as copper, grit, coffee grounds and so on - Slugbandit really does work.

Slugbandit cannot deter any pests that are already within an enclosed area. Slugs and snails which hibernate in the ground need to be removed. This is best and most simply done by using nematodes. [However, nematodes will not prevent a new infestation or stop marauding].

Slugbandit cannot function properly if the battery has run down or the bands are short circuited by something like a metal object.

Slugbandit can neither prevent insects flying in nor can it stop pests that climb in over bridging stems or arching fronds.

Slugbandit cannot easily be adapted to very uneven ground over a big area, e.g. a rockery.
