Slimey Slugs

Something has been chewing holes in my orchid leaves but I could never find what it was. I had a dendrobium planted in a small pot and had set that into a larger pot for stability. When i took the smaller pot out of the larger pot I discovered two slimey slugs which I squashed. I fear they are in other pots and I can't see them. What is the best way to get rid of them?

Go out to your orchids at least a couple of hours after it has become completely dark and look around with a flashlight. You'd be amazed how many of God's little creatures are out there enjoying your plants.

Thanks, I'll do that tonight.
