Pull the mulch away from the base of the hostas. This is where they live. Sink the beer so it is level with the ground, like an in ground beer pool. They will literally RUN into the beer. THe cheaper the beer the better. Think snails are slow, HEHEHE put out some cheap beer.
Diatomaceous earth will kill them. It cuts them up.
IF you go out at night and see them, you can spray them with an amonia/water solution. Make sure it is pure amonia not hte colored scented junk. Amonia will turn to nitrogen in your soil and will kill slugs on contact. Try not to get any on the leaves, it might burn them.
DONT use salt, it is bad news for your dirt.
good luck they are slimy b#$W%^%^&... and are hard to reckon with.
