    • As of today, slug pellets can no longer be used or sold in the UK
    Slugs and snails will no longer be classed as pests by the Royal Horticultural Society, despite being the garden visitor the charity receives the most complaints about.

    Government was advised by the UK Expert Committee on Pesticides and the Health and Safety Executive that metaldehyde slug pellets pose an unacceptable risk to wildlife.

    I wonder if there'll be an increase in demand for beer as a result.
