    Slugs...

    Tenant may in the near future experience slugs in the kitchen, mainly over winter period.

    Is Landlord or Tenant responsilble for this.

    Only happened last year, not years before. So maybe expect it to happen again if all pellets have been used up.


    (We think dog brought one in from its paws, and got under the kitchen units, we treated all underneath and seen no more slugs, but unsure if they will return. New tenant has a dog.)

    Not a good idea to leave slug pellets lying around for months. They are toxic to some pets.

    Better to find out where the slugs are getting in (follow the trails back to point of entry) and block up any holes/gaps to outside.

    Unless there was a major infestation with lots of holes needing blocking, I would expect a tenant to do this - it's a minor maintenance task really, like replacing a washer or bleeding a radiator.

      Just make sure all females in the house have a bit of a heel, that will solve the problem.

        Or just assume all the males are a bit of a heel.
