Every year I have tons of slugs in my garden wrecking havoc. Last year I used small cups of beer to catch them and caught alot. Is there any other method you could recommend?

Trapping with beer or by propping up terra cotta pots are usually effective but if you are at your wit's end, you can use the iron phosphate based slug control like Sluggo. Whatever is not consumed by slugs will decompose and add iron to the soil. Best wishes with your garden!
