For slugs all I did was raise the level of my pots, like put them on a table or so and salted the rim (duct tape is godly) . No more problems since.
Also if you want a lot of bugs (flies mostly) to visit your plants, plant a flowering parsley herb and watch all the bugs come in. Before I planted it my Purp had clear water pitchers for about a month. After almost every pitcher now has Coppery brown colour water filled to the brim with dead bugs. (smells very much) Sadly now there is more flies than ever in my backyard and its annoying...no more backyard dinners.
Not sure if it's of any help with CP (maybe one of our resident chem guru's can chime in) but I've recently started using Epsom salts for slug control with my veggie and flower gardens, it's worked amazing there but pH is not an issue for those. Might be worth checking into at least?
I agree there is a ton of good info in this post! thanks everone for there input! I like the copper idea and will source some out, for now it's nightly checks with scissors, needle nose plyers, flashlight, salt and lighterfluid
