A nice hot coffee

Eek! The Telegraph has a horticultural scare story today about an invasion of giant 10-inch Spanish slugs...

"we're in the midst of an invasion — and the slugs are bigger and more ferocious than ever."

Apparently a bucket of hot strong coffee kills them...

"a bucket of hot water [with coffee granules] Research by the US-based Agricultural Research Service in 2011 found that a 1 to 2 per cent caffeine solution kills slugs and snails."
