Maz!
To get rid of the slugs, tip a beer can on its side (with some beer still in it) and "snuggle" it down into the soil.

The slugs love the beer and drown in it.

Am I making sense?

yes you are! the only thing is that it would take about 10 crates of empty cans to kill all the ones I've got!!

Do you think sprinkling salt around the bed, and putting beer cans around will keep them from climbing into bed with you??
