Slugs like coleus foliage so it you cannot find insects or caterpillars on your plants, slugs are probably what's feasting on them. You can broadcast the iron based bait called Sluggo around your coleus. It is harmless to wildlife, people and pets but does a great job controlling slugs. Hope this solves the problem!
