Encourage hedgehogs into your garden....until a few years ago all my tender shoots were being nibbled to nothing then m. Hedgehog moved in and hoovered up the lot...I put out a handful of peanuts for him/her at dusk NB to deter birds from taking for baby food (choking hazard) and in the morning the pile had been hoovered up....if you have aquiet corner you could provide a small house for it....if it becomes a resident, could breed and then you have your own army to pursue slugs to an early death on a regular basis....
