Slug warfare

I can't believe I've just spent the last half hour wearing headtorch and spearing 35 slugs with a wooden skewer. These beasts are really getting to me this year. I think they are living in the soil in the cracks between the flags on the patio and are merrily feasting on my growing rocket. I am wondering wether a salt solution poured over the patio would do the deed and if there is any reason not to try it?( unless you are a slug lover of course)
