Description:

I'm pretty sure these are the nocturnal slugs that live under the kickboards round my kitchen units. We had loads a couple of months back but none now (late november)(after nighttime vigils!.
If I look really close there are extremely small yellow parasites (mites?) that move really fast (c.5cm/s)around the slug. Not sure if these 'swim' through the (very sticky)slug slime or have non-stick feet and run over surface??
Its hard to love a slug (especially when infesting your kitchen)
