[Market-farming] Slug control in mild winter hoophouse

Since we're talking about Vegetable Weevil Larvae in winter hoophouse...
does anyone have a good strategy for slug control on same (chard, broccoli,
bok choi, etc...? My hoophouse is 65x24' and temps here (W. Mass.) havent
been any colder than elsewhere in the east. My hope was that sub-freezing
temps in hoophouse would diminish slug probs while leaving the greens and
brassicas quite happy. We don't keep any fowl (widely recommended as natural
slug control) nor would I want to interrupt growing cycle long enough to
safely compost their manure inside the high value greenhouse space...
