I remember a post somewhere where the police had advised to paint all your garden tools bright pink.

It wont stop a break in but thieves are less likly to take your tools as they would be harder to sell and easier to spot.

Ive heard copper wire placed around your beds will deter slugs.
I have never tried it myself though.

Ant invasion

One of my raised beds has been invaded by 1000s of ants.
Are my seedlings at danger or will my veg be in any danger as it matures?
