Default Slugs

been at my current residence for 27 years. Never in my life have we been invaded this way. Put out upwards of 20 little cups of beer for the last week. Filled a Home Depot bucket with slugs. So bad the bottom of my pool was covered with dead ones. encircled the pool grounds with Calcium Chloride.

anyone have any suggestions other than moving or torching my grounds?

For slugs, I recommend Brenneke.

Turtles or ducks....

They won't cross copper, a heavy gauge copper wire around a flower pot will prevent the slug from climbing into the pot. Circle your pool with copper flashing?

Don't they dissolve in salt? Maybe dump some salt around the perimeter of your home and hope it doesn't rain?
