 I find that using Sevin (either 5% or 10%) serves double duty. It kills the 
cutworms and deters the slugs. Be very careful using the vinegar solution--I 
nearly killed 4 hostas using a 6:1 solution. Some people use an ammonia 
solution. Both of these require direct hits on the slugs, however. 
 The best slug bait available in my neck of the woods is Spectracide 
Sluggit.Also, the paste is effective.

There is a British product that is even better. It is Bio something are 
other. Perhaps it is now available in the states, but not in Indy.
