Q.pepper plants

Something is stripping my pepper plants of leaves. I’ve put out slug/snail bait sprayed with Captains Jacks Debug and no results. What else can I use or any suggestions?

Ah, I do have a solution! Oddly enough, it has to do with peppers... Make a preparation by boiling Hot peppers in a small amount of water. Cut them into large chunks so that you can easily take them out. Spray the plants with this spicy water.

Alternatively, you can use garlic oil, rosemary oil, or any other strong scented oils.
