If you use pellets thickly they actually encourage more slugs - more come for the free goodies, but none get enough to actually kill them, so you end up in a worse state than before. As welshonion says, use sparingly, and use the iron based ones, called growing success, they are as good as the others at killling slugs, but harm no other wild life. Better yet, put a collar of copper arpund you lovely Fire and Ice hosta, they hate that. I have that hosta, it does not get enormous but does thicken up - it is lovely now.
