Getting Rid of What Might Be Slugs

I planted tomatoes and garlic last year in an 18" raised bed and at night these black slimy things came out of the bottom under the wooden raised bed. They didn't have any shells. I finally found out that they came out just before dark. They would climb up the sides of the bed into the plant area. One night I went out with a flashlight and captured a whole bunch of them and disposed of them. What are they? I didn't get a picture.

Put small bowls of beer. They will drown in it. They also don't like eggshells

You could fill a cup half way with milk/beer. There are other useful methods referenced below.

If you want to trap them in a humane way, they love cabbage leaves and citrus rinds that are wet. You can set a trap to catch them using these in another location nearby.
