If I plant slug resistant plants around the plants that seem to attract the slimy little bs,,,, will it deter them from the immediate area ?

No. Plants are slug resistant because slugs don't like the taste of them, not because they are scared to go near them

In fact you could try the opposite - plant sacrificial slug caviare plants around the ones you want to keep. Might work!

Landgirls suggestion is worth considering,,, has any body ever tried it.
