Tiger slugs have invaded the worm farm. They need hand picking out - yuck. I do not feed the tiger slugs to the chickens as their slime is extremely glutinous - the slime glues up the chicken's beaks and they have an awful job trying to get the slime off.
Tiger slugs Limax maximus were introduced into New Zealand from Europe and these pesky Molluscs eat my plants, seedlings AND
my tiger worms - GASP!
Yes tiger slugs eat meat and are a good thing to have in your garden as they also eat other types of slugs - this keeps the slug population down. BUT not a good thing to have in the worm farm.
What I really need is an invasion of hedgehogs to keep these slugs at bay.
It's a job that needed to be done - searching through all of the worm farm apartments looking for slugs.
Being a pest controller might be useful on a CV?
The worm poop (castings) is brilliant to add to the vegetable garden
