Spring is here, and what a welcomed sight it is!
After experiencing two very cold winters, this past winter has been rather mild. Because of the mild temperatures, it is a good chance that slugs have survived, which may cause our plants some issues.
Slugs use their rasping mouthparts to tear tissue from leaves, stems, and flowers. New transplants and small seedlings are especially vulnerable to these creatures. Feeding damage and silvery slime trails on bedding plants is a sign of the creatures.
