Slug attack

As anybody had experienced any slug attack against young  perennial phlox 

I propogated a number of these plants last year and planted then out in the last few weeks 

In the last 7 days most of them have been stripped clean of any foliage, just leaving a rather worn down middle stems 

Totally frustrating as in my experience slugs do not normally target this plant

    Yes, they're eating anything and everything this year. I have been picking them off the phlox every night this week.

    Hi Posy 

    Yes , same here. Just a bit strange that phlox paniculata is on their menu as I have never had a slug give this plant a hungry glance 

    As you have stated, nothing seems to be excused slug attack this spring image
