:lol: For slugs you can ring the bed with salt. Salt will keep them out.
For other pests I use a sprayer filled with a nicotene  water from the buttcan. Dogs, cats, squirels, ants, milipedes, etc...  avoid the scent of nicotene.

Good Luck

you can buy this copper stuff that will keep them out.

or you can put pennies all the way around your mushroom patch.

slugs hate copper!~

Put shallow containers filled with beer around it! Slugs like getting drunk even more than shrooming! Plus, they crawl in and drown, and then sprinkle some diatomaceous earth over the top of the grow.. It cuts up there bellies, thus making sure they will prefer the beer.

The beer works really well, I have tried that before in my garden. I like the nicotine idea though if you are having problems with animals digging up your bed. My only concern is that I wouldnt want my backyard smelling like nicotine either.
