    Lowe's sells a garden safe slug and snail remover. They also sell the same product made by Ortho

    Try pouring salt around the beds.. it helps. But Lowes has a slug repellent.

    Place crushed eggshells around your plants. Softbodied slugs and snails won't try to crawl over them.

    Salt (table salt) on the soil will make the snails and slugs dissolve, you don't need much of it.

    Hi Rhonda, You can only try to control them with Slug pellets etc. they can never be eliminated. Best thing to do is to buy bigger more robust plants that will stand a bit of damage or grow flowering shrubs instead.

    sprinkle crushed red pepper around the beds. the kind some like to sprinkle on pizza. some dollar stores sell big containers of it. good suggestion getting larger size plants too.
