Get some Sluggo. Non-Toxic. Even OK to use with pets and kids
around. Not a poison. Good stuff. Stops slugs. They stop eating
and die. I've used it for years now.

I'll second that. Active ingredient is ferrous phosphate (iron phosphate
on container). It is non toxic to mammals (you and me and our pets,

Locally, you can get Sluggo at $10/lb., or Ortho Ecosense brand at
$5/lb. (found at Home Despot) Bill who putters got the straight poop
(chemical), and that worked out to $1/lb or so. We may have to threaten

before it arrived.
