To reduce problems with our gate locks we oil them on a regular basis (if we remember) - about once a month. Unfortunately this does mean that keys may well get a bit messy for a few days so please be aware. ).

Slug Pellets

Blue metaldehyde is soon to be banned. The chemical is authorised by the EU and they are likely to withdraw that authorisation at some stage but not before 2023. However Michael Gove has decided that the UK will bring in a ban from Spring 2020. There are other similar treatments but these are much more expensive.
