I noticed that article points to slug problems with hostas. While I don't have any hostas in my yard, I did recently have a slug problem, which I noticed after some leaves on my pepper plants were being eaten. When I came out at night to inspect, not only did a find slugs on that plant, but they were all other flowers in pots. It seems they were living in the mulch bed during the day and coming out at night in large numbers. I bought some Garden Safe Slug & Snail Bait and sprinkled it around the mulch beds and lawns, and even a bit in the pots as well. Last night I checked and didn't see a single slug, so it may be working.
