It was a sure sign of warm evenings when only yesterday we were visited by a cockchafer, Melolontha melolontha, which decided it lied our lights and kept banging its head against the window. I know that they are supposed to damage fruit trees, but I think they are rather engaging.
People tell me they have problems with slugs and snails on their plant racks, thankfully not a problem here, the stock is too important. What I have done is extended the legs of the racks by about 30cm using copper pipe. The snails just do not like it, regardless of there being a free meal at the top.
