As gardening site Gardening Know How points out, the best long-term way to control slugs in your garden is by trying to attract predators like toads and non-poisonous snakes.

After being attracted and coming to check out the beer, the slugs will drown in it. Hit up the full article for more tips on dealing with garden slugs.
