Slugs can be perpetual visitors to the garden so you may need to use slug bait all season long, from spring until fall. The newer iron based slug baits work best. Sluggo is one brand name of an iron based slug control product, EscarGo is another These products are harmless to people and pets and do a great job in controlling slugs and snails. You will also want to try to eliminate their hiding places - organic mulches, garden debris, cool shady spots - as best you can to discourage their hiding in your garden. Best wishes with your landscape.
