To help defend against slugs, snails, and ants, we use a two tier system. First we put down a wide path of diatomaceous earth that slugs and snails will not walk across. Although the DE will not harm the slugs and snails they do not like it and will rarely cross its path. Fortunately, the DE will take out the ants eventually by cutting their exoskeleton.
