Darn those slugs!

The slugs have eaten all of my climbing beans, and the rubeckia I planted out the other day. I think I might need something a little more powerful to get rid of them...

According to Gardeners World, the grapefruit shells trick is to lure the slugs to hide under them, then you can collect them more easily. I'm also going to try putting pots of milk or beer in the soil to trap them. I read also that coffee is a good slug deterrent, but Radio 4 listeners mostly disagree...
