It's not a good idea for any predator to eat all it's prey - that way lies extinction for the predator! A healthy balance is the ideal situation for them.
Frogs, toads, birds and hedgehogs etc help us ... we can't always rely on them to do the whole job ... sometimes we need to lend them a hand (organically) if we want to grow plants that are susceptible to slugs and snails.
And don't forget, it's the little slugs that do most of the damage to our plants - most of the big slugs eat already decomposing plant matter and other slugs!
