    Found out lots of these creatures in many pot plants at night. Anyone knows what they called?

    Slugs. Buy pet friendly bait at Bunnings. They are eating their salad meal

    Leeches. Fairly common in the Druitt. They suck.

    Beer slug trap would do nicely. Pop open a beer, put a little bit in a small shallow container around your plant and enjoy the reset of your beer.

    I hope everyone carefully read that. DONT open beer and allow slugs in and then drink the beer

    Slugs and snails can harbour a nasty bug (some rat shi7 thing) that rapidly causes brain damage through encephylitis. NEVER eat a slug etc as a dare. Never allows slugs to exist near tint tots.
