Since your garden is a haven for slugs and snails, I'm afraid the only way to control them is with poison baits. I use the iron based pellets called Sluggo (or EscarGo). These don't hurt wildlife, children or pets but when slugs and snails eat them, they go away and die. I'd give them a try. Hope they work well for you!
