Leaves Being Eaten

All the leaves of my impatiens are being eaten.  I don’t have beer to put by the plants and I have animals, so no poison. What do you suggest? Thanks.

If you are sure the culprit is snails or slugs, you could spread crushed egg shells or sharp sand around the impatiens planting. Also, diatomaceous earth will help control these pests.
