I notice them mostly around the edging and sidewalks.
The wife get grossed out by them and when I sprinkle them w/salt they turn into a puddle of slim that doesn't wash off easily. If I sprinkle them while in the lawn, the salt kills the grass.
I do have some liquid insect killer that you have to mix w/water and apply w/a garden hose but, it doesn't indicate that it will work for slugs. It does indicate that it works for grubs but, I found that it doesn't.
Think you die an early death with booze in a pan. My wife threw away the container but it was yellow and green _____ dust. They still come back but its in the spring, and there easy to get rid of. And don't use salt on the drive. I tried it and then had to scrub them off after the sun dried them.
I use beer in a pan, when I need. Slugs are bad for some flowers and such. Ichhy things. The beer acts like bait, they fall in... drown. Personally I hate beer so using it for slugs doesn't faz me a bit. Oh, and I don't have a dog either....
