    I've never tried it, but I've heard that beer works.

    If killing them is ok with you, salt, it fries them immediately, I lived in Oregon so I know this, it's gross. They'll get in your house!

    Saucers of beer work, also a product sold at garden stores called Sluggo.

    Definitely a low container of beer that is set in the dirt to make it easy for the slugs to hop in. A never fail for me

    Depends on whether or not you have other animals you like. When I put out a plate of beer one of my dogs found it tasty. Ok, fail. So I put cat litter around and under each of my potted plants. That worked!
