Stale beer in small containers buried in level to the ground. The slugs will drink it and die. Kills snails too. Or, you can place a barrier of saw dust around the plot. They can't cross over it.

You'll have to replace the beer (as it will evaporate) and the sawdust (as it will get wet and break down) to keep the slugs out. But that's better on the plot than poisoning the soils with salt.

Buy some slug killer. Get the kind that doesn't harm humans or pets. Don't put it directly on your patch, put it around your patch and then all over your yard. Go for the massive kill. All the slugs in my neighborhood are dead to me. I even put some in my neighbors yard. I suck them all in with the sweet smell of mycelium, then I go for some mass execution. It is slug genocide on a wide scale. The garden beds are littered with the fallen carcuses of the war. Somewhere in slug hell, they have my picture hanging on high.

Now sure, you might say, "But Jesus, slugs have feelings to." But I am Christ, not Budda. I don't care about the great circle of life. Slugs probably do have feelings, and I bet that they are pretty good feelings when they are eating my shrooms. I always said that those slugs would be first against the wall when the revolutions comes. Well now, the revolution is here, and it will be televised. Death to slugs!

And don't think for a moment that this will simply stop here. This is just the begining. It is really a diabolical plan to take over the entire free world, one patch at a time. Think globably, kill all the slugs you can locally.

IMO i would go with starter's idea on the beer. i've seen it work before so i have faith in it.

Next time someone asks you WWJD?

Tell him that he would kill the slugs.

Trust Jesus, kill slugs dead.
