For the first time ever in years of being at the site, our French Climbing Beans have been completely destroyed  by pigeons. It's not slugs, the Flying Rats have been spotted doing it. They've never bothered with beans before, just going after peas and brassica -   and it's only the French one destroyed. Runner beans are unt9uched. This has happened to every plot growing French beans.  We have 3 Feral cats on site but they're happy with rats and mice. Only one pigeon taken.

Has anyone else had this problem this season? Is it possibly because we are all netting peas and brassicas?

Hi All, I think it's slugs and snails eating my brassicas. I grow them in weed barrier with holes cut in. I have crushed egg shells and sprinkled them around every plant but maybe not enough. I have got some hair from the barber to see if that helps. I am reluctant to use pellets as there is a blackbird and a robin that come right up close when i am weeding. I have got some liquid traps, never used yet< and was wondering if alcohol free beer would be a good thing to use to trap them. Does anyone have a home made recipe for a liquid trap? I have my home brew but it's for me  :drunken_smilie: but would try it.  Has anyone got advice to help. Thankyou all in advance.
