Walking on eggshells

No one likes walking on eggshells! The saying suggests an atmosphere where everyone is tense and someone could be easily upset. Slugs don’t like walking or sliding on eggshells either but they would be delighted to feast on our crops of vegetables.

Eggshells are a perfect way to deter pesky slugs without just whacking them with toxic chemicals. We want to create an unwelcome environment for slugs in our garden. Every-time you make an omelette or just boil an egg send the shells into the school and we will add them to our slug defence. Egg shells are welcome at any time of the year!
