They are getting in my house, like through the baseboards into my bedrooms? I can't afford a exterminator.

    Use epsom salt sprinkled around the area . I also read that copper penny’s deter them...the epsom salt would be safer than a pesticide. Good luck.

    be sure to check all areas for holes and cracks and fill them in .. you can use salt along your baseboards as well as the Epsom salts..

    I had the same problem. I picked up a bag of slug repellent at my local home improvement store and put it all around any potential access points. It comes in pellet form, you just sprinkle it around on the ground. I haven't seen a single slug since. Well worth the few dollars I spent.

    Slug bait all around your house....if you have pets make sure it is pet friendly. Beer in bowls also...they crawl in and drown a happy death. Salt...but that is cruel IMO.

      They're SLUGS! What would you use on Ticks?? (and they're smart enough to avoid it by sliding away... that's the whole point.)

    I went to my local home improvement store and bought some slug repellent pellets. I sprinkled them directly on the ground around all access points and under my ground level deck. I haven't seen a slug since. Well worth the couple of dollars I spent.
