This year my slugs will be teetotal

Damp and chilly and uninspiring these days, but signs of life.  Catkins are on the hazel and the snowdrops are awake.  The head had fallen from this one and inside it was a little slug.  You can see the very tiny hole where it had started to chomp at the fallen flower. 

So, it's getting warm enough for slugs.  Suppose I'd better start setting up the beer traps again.  I'm trying them on cola this year.  They were very picky about the beers, wouldn't go for the cheap ones and it doesn't seem quite right to keep giving the good stuff to the slugs.
