Killing slugs

Asked May 28, 2020, 1:21 PM EDT

Is there an insect I can purchase that might help me get rid of my slugs in a small garden patch without harming Hostas, coral bells, itea Little henrys, geranium Roseanne, viburnum summer snowflake, and hydrangea limelight tree?

Slugs are a chewing pest and are found at night in moist areas of the garden. They will feed at night and rest under mulch limbs etc during the day. Slug control with its variety of control measures can be accomplished. Slugs traps are effective and found to be a better option for gardens. Attached are links that have been used for slug control.
