Since moving into my home I have noticed slugs coming from damp cupboard under stairs ( that is tiny)late at night and foraging in cats feeding bowl.I would never harm anything but is it safe for me to pick up any I find in the house in the early hours and place them outside. I know about deterrents but Id like to know if this is OK and that they will survive as I've been here 4 years and there families have been here longer than me.I know I'm a big softie but please advise as I'd rather let them be than they perish but the constant silvery trails are a bit of a nuisance and I'm having a baby also.Thanks

I don't think you will do the slugs any harm if you gently remove them outside.
