Netted Slug

Gardeners probably won’t like this one. The Netted Slug (Deroceras (Deroceras) reticulatum) is very much hated as a pest as it eats the leaves of many various plants and crops, including seedlings.

It also goes by the names as the Field Slug or Grey Field Slug.

  1. I grew up where slugs were common. Large slugs, several varieties. One avoided stepping on them when barefoot.

    Then I lived in a drier climate where there were no slugs. I sort of missed them.

    Now I’m living where there are slugs, but they’re tiny compared to those I grew up with. A nice compromise.

    Thank you, for your ode to slugs.
