Too many slug pellets badly applied

It happens on several plots on our allotment. The over-generous scattering of slug pellets. It’s madness really. The instructions are there to be read but are rarely followed. In this picture you can see someone has scattered them actually on to the plants and they’re dissolving slowly in the rain. Does this mean they’ll be more absorbed into the plant or washed off into the soil?
