I just leave them and hope my army of helpers (frogs,hedgehogs,thrushes etc) will eat them. I tell my grandchildren that they are someone elses dinner, so we leave them alone. I am totally organic and believe that after a while there is a predator for everything. It works for me.
Problem is few predators actively seek slugs and none like larger slugs, so if Slugs survive to maturity then there is a good chance that they breed. I normally have a dozen slugs in my garden and I still had a plaque this year. I had to use the blue pellets as they were picking my garden clean. I had 6 frogs in spring and 6 in autumn.
