Slugs for Summer

Are slugs just not one of the yuckiest things around? My kids think so and we have an over abundance of them right now. We have had like 4 inches of rain in the last 72 hours. Every tree has slugs crawling up them . . . .Slugger counted 50 on one tree alone. The best killer is a shallow dish of beer and they drown them selves, salt directly on them or a firm and direct squash by ones foot is sufficient.

What is the purpose of slugs besides leaving a gooey mess on pets, ruining plant leaves and the like. This is our quest- the purpose of slugs. For now we will prevail in our vigilance in obstructing them from the garden!
