  • I stick a row of salt under my doors, on the outside, to prevent them from getting in the house!!!

  • Sounds like you need new doors if there's a big enough crack for them to slither under

  • Copper wire or strips. You can affix it to the floor in front of your doors on the outside. The copper carries a slight charge, so when the slugs try to cross it, it gives them a jolt and they won't cross it all the way.
