The trick is to scatter slug pellets, the wildlife friendly sort treehugger recommends. You need to start in late winter - Feb 14th is an easy date to remember - and spread them thinly but regularly around susceptible pants as the slugs and snails are emerging from hibernation or hatching from eggs. That way you get them before they start to feed and breed on your treasures.
I have an acre of garden and get through less than one pack of pellets a season by following this system around hostas, clems, hemerocallis, baby veggies and other gourmet slug plants. Works for me.
