I have slugs taking over my lettuce in my garden, I use this lettuce for my large tortoise to eat and I don't want to use any harmful chemicals to exterminate the slugs, any advice?

You can use an iron based slug control such as Sluggo. It is harmless to people, pets and wildlife and whatever is not consumed by the slugs will deteriorate into iron for your soil. Good luck with your project!
