Well. Welsh onion beat me to it.
Red dahlia, I know it's time, etc., but an old jar or container with salt and a little water and a torch is the only real solution. I do it and I'm a fairly busy so and so.
After dark, say 10 - 10 . 30, go out to your plants and pop the little blighters in your salt solution. I think those little ones dont touch pellets amyway so picking them off is the way to go. Also check under your pots.
If you pick them off at this time of the year your young plants will have a chance to grow. When they are bigger they resist slugs etc much better.
Or. Use nematodes. Those sunken beer traps look awful and they are awful
