Move to the desert area. Otherwise you can buy slug bait or put beer in a shallow pan.
When snails appear on our deck, I sprinkle them with salt, it seriously dehydrates their bodies, I also make a barrier with salt, this is not the best for plants so I would not use it in the garden. It works fine on the deck.
Garlic also kills them, crush the garlic and add water, put this through a filter, like a coffee filter, otherwise the garlic pieces will clog the spray.
Hi Joe, here is a video that might help... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9Dj5KSggBw

Sprinkle eggshells around your plants or make a beer trap.
Grapefruit attracts them. Cut in half. They will crawl in and get trapped, then die. A turned over flower pot will do the same but won't attract them.
You can put a board out and flip it over to kill them from the underside as well.
Sink a few bowls or plates in the ground level with the surface. Fill the bowls/plates with (cheap) beer. The yeast attracts the slugs. They drink their fill and drown. Not their sorrows
Anything you can make it uncomfortable for the slugs/snails to crawl on will deter them. A combination of solutions from everyone here should take care of them.
Broken nutshells work in the same way as egg shells when getting rid of slugs. Break up the nutshells into small pieces, and create a protective barrier around your plants. Any slugs that come near your vegetables will soon turn the other way.
Crushed egg shells work as a great home remedy of slugs. This is because slugs don’t like moving across sharp objects, although it isn’t not impossible for them to do, they just prefer not to. Break up the empty egg shells into small(ish) pieces and place around the flowers, plants, vegetables, and fruits you want to keep safe from slug damage.
Ash and Cinders make a rough protective barrier, and the fine ash also acts as a desiccant that dries the slug out. Wood ash and cinders are preferable. Avoid direct contact with plants.
Grit and Gravel. The sharp rasping edges of finely crushed ‘horticultural grit’ makes an excellent slug barrier. Coarser gravel is largely ineffective, other than for decorative purposes.
Sandpaper. Cut rings of sandpaper and slip them round the stems of vulnerable plants.
Sawdust makes a good coarse barrier around tender plants, also acting as a desiccant that dries the slug out. Hardwood sawdust is most effective, and some people recommend cedar or oak.
Copper Rings or Discs. Solid copper rings/discs of various diameter, used to encircle single or small groups of plants to inflict a mild electric shock on the unsuspecting slug. Look for rings that clip together. These are easy to slip round established plant stems, or join together to form a larger barrier.
Free range chickens.
