Slugs will definitely eat brugs and devour daturas. Here on the pacific north west coast we have banana slugs that are 6" long and ugly. Put beer in a dish by the plants. Seriously, they drink the beer and drown or die but it works.

A ring of copper around your plants works too.
An electrical current passes between the slug's body secreetions and the copper ans they choose not to cross it.
I use the copper piping that is used to pipe water to a fridge if it has an automatic wayer/ Icecube maker. I use the 3/8 diameter tubing, it is 20' long and costs $11.00 at home depot.
It is very flexible, easy to cut and recycleble.
