Hi, Thorsaxe I am very grateful to you guys that are doing work on Russian slugs as it will give much-needed information to my customers in the UK and Europe, even though you are starting from the beginning again because of the lack of information from Russia. I certainly do not try and teach my teacher but I do have a couple of suggestions for you if you wish to try I will contact you privately to discuss if you wish Nigel from russianslugmoulds.com
