Crack egg 🥚 shells 🐚 into tiny pieces and shatter these around the base of the hosta. Or buy some copper, which I bought from Poundland last year it’s on a strip of adhesive so if you have some in pots. Stick it around the top of the pot. Not saying this will stop them completing but it’ll make it harder for them. Hope you get on ok @pelly
