Slug infestation!

We had 3 inches of rain last night and the weather is warm (air-conditioner is back on). When I walked out to get the paper this morning, there were 100's and this is NOT an exaggeration of slugs on my sidewalk to the front door, on the front door, on the patio in the back, and all over the driveway. It was hard to walk up the driveway to the mailbox without stepping on one. There just doesn't seem to be an easy solution. The Bug-geta doesn't work; beer doesn't work. Salt does work, but I had to put it on everyone of the little suckers. They are hermaphroditic, so if even one is left, the problem remains. They don't have to mate to continue the species.
