Green (recycle) and black (general) bins sit side by side in a shelter
outdoors. This morning was green bin day and after emptying I spotted
no less than 12 slugs inside the bin. None at all on the black bin.
Anyone know why so many, why none on the black bin?

What's the difference in the contents? Food waste? Garden waste? Or
perhaps the black bin, being black, gets hotter than the green one
when the sun shines on it (or vice-versa, whichever slugs prefer).
I think flies' eyes are particularly sensitive to the blue end of the
spectrum. Don't electric fly zappers have a UV neon tube to attract them
(looks blue to us humans)? I painted a garden seat with Cuprinol Sage
paint (which is a somewhat bluish darkish-green colour), and it often
was covered with flies.
